Help me choose

Hi All

Like I posted previously i have a limited budget (not more than 9K)

I am struggling to choose between

1. Merida tfs 500 (2012)

2. Merida tfs 800 (2011)

3. Commondale sl2 (2010)

4. Bianchi Kuma 5500 or maybe Jab 7100 (2011's)

5. Silverback Ventura (2011)

 

I was told at my LBS to hang ten for about 2 weeks as they will be getting in all 2012 models which will drop the 2011 prices.

 

Any advice on which of the above?

Thanks in advance ;)

I have the Ventura and I'm super happy with it! Infact I have not heard one bad thing about it!

For R9000 if you looking at Silverback why not go for the Spectra, higher specced .

I see the 2011 Ventura is going for R7400 at my LBS - great value I think - not sure of the rest?

 

What LBS is it?

Get on them and ride them, even if it is in the parking lot. Assuming they all of similar spec the right bike will be the bike that just feels right.
