I have a similar question, so I hope you don't mind me jumping in on your thread, no1mad.

I'm looking to buy an N+1 for commuting and getting around town. Because I'm not into racing or anything absolutely serious, I was considering the Trek 1.1, as I own a 7.3 right now, and used to have a 1.2.

Then I realized that coming up with the scratch for the Trek ($583 + tax) would be pretty difficult. The 1.1 is exclusively Shimano 2300 and an alumnim fork. Then I saw the Windsor Wellington 3.0 (carbon fork/2200/Sora) and Motobecane Mirage Sport (steel fork/2200) for $399.

Will I forever hate my life if I decide to go with either BD bike? My OTD price for the Trek will be $640, while the BDs will be $399 - that's pretty signficant. I was going to post this in the 41, but Lord knows they'd have a field day over there.
