A 2011 Demo Trek X-Caliber with a wheelset upgrade

OR

A 2010 Superfly with 2,000 miles on it?

Ooooooh Superfly!!

But just b/c I want one doesn't necessarily mean you do

...how much is a Superfly with 2,000 miles on it?

(oh who am I kidding...I couldn't even afford a big box store mountain bike now)

I just asked the hubby...he said he'd go for the 2011 Trek, especially if it comes with a warranty.

He also says kudos for buying a hardtail!

Both bikes come out to the same price. I have to say, after just riding the Superfly, I liked the feel of it ALOT. He has it set up in an agressive racing style. The Trek X-Caliber felt more like a cruiser bike. The Superfly is a full carbon frame.

My DH is normally completely against buying used bikes, so imagine my surprise when he told me just a minute ago to go for the Superfly!

I'm going to do some more research, but I think you can figure out which way I'm leaning . . . .

While I don't know much about either bike, it looks to me like you already know which one feels the best

Whatever you decide, we are looking forward to the pictures!

Although the Superfly is an amazing bike my thought is 2,000 miles is a lot on a mountain bike. Was it raced? Does he have maintenance records? Is it factory fork, has it been rebuilt? I am not opposed to used but mountain bikes take a beating so I am more hesitant about them.

This, especially for a carbon frame that's only a year old.
