Felt F85 vs. Felt F75X

Hi all! New to the forum and needed some help in deciding which bike to get. I am looking at the 2012 Felt F85 and Felt F75X. I am only looking at these two because I can get 33% off. First off I am a recreational rider and not a racer. I ride for fitness and enjoyment. Aside from training rides I like to ride in charity events, centuries and the occasional multi day long tour. I would say I spend more time on road but do run into the occasional fire road. I am trying to find a bike that is multi purposefull. A Jack of all trades. My current steed is a bit long in the tooth age wise and I want to take advantage of my discount and get a new bike. Any input or advice on the pros and cons of either of these bikes would be appreciated. I'll take any suggestions! Thanks for your time!

Maybe you are subconsciously interested in getting a recumbent bike?

I see you realized your mistake and created a post in Road. Hope you get the answers you're looking for. I'll go ahead and close this thread.
