Felt Straightshot<>Diamondback assault. Which should I get?

I can afford either, which would everyone say is better? Felt frames look really nice. And the parts are qual in quality I think.

To me the felt seems like the better way to go. Love the fork on the diamondback though. Im just guessing but the fork on the felt looks likea manitou.

Manitou Stance.

Felt seems like good value to me.

Awsome, thanks for the advise. I was kinda guessing that the felt was a much better frame. The felt has Answer Stance forks, 130mm. Diamondback had DJ3 100mm. I know both forks are a little chinchy, though they are replaceable...
