    need advice on a new ride

    I just sold my trusted old Jake the Snake and am ready to place an order, but with some much good stuff to choose from I am torn.
    My choices are:
    1. A new Jake-the '05 spec looks solid and the price is right.
    2. Felt F1X-Looks like an intriguing spec/price, but I have never seen one which concerns me.
    3. Salsa Las Cruces- not a fan of the color, but the frame weight looks good
    4. IF Planet X- Long shot due to price, but this is the fantasy bike.

    Thought and opinions would be appreciated.

    IF! I have a 2002 frame and LOVE it. My buddy has the Las Cruces and likes it a lot. He claims it's so light that it almost bounces off the trail.

    for what it's worth, the salsa is virtually the same bike as the kona major jake.
    when walking, just walk. when sitting, just sit. when riding, just ride. above all, don't wobble.
