Help Choosing new ride!!

I am tore between 2 bikes. I have rode a Trek Y-5-0 (11 UPGRADED) for the past 9 years, and rode Specialized A-1 Comp and Hardrock before that. Now tring to decide on new bike. Either one of Treks Fuels or a Speialized Epic. Which one do you all sugest and why?
Thanks Joe

I really love my '05 Fuel EX8 and it is serving me well, very reliable period and a great all around bike for XC, I love it and my LBS is great with them. If I won the lotto I would get the 9.5! Have fun

Ride both then pick the one you have the most fun on (and feel the most comfortable on).
