I really hate to start a thread like this, but I have the opportunity to get either bike fully built for nearly the same price, so here goes nothing...

I can pick up a 2010 Specialized Demo 8 II or 2010 Intense 951 w/ the SRAM build kit for nearly the same $$$.

I'm ~5'10" and ~155lbs, I race during collegiate season and am decently fast. I don't consider myself to be a complete hack and I'm decently smooth.

I'm considering going for the Demo 8 II on its build kit alone which seems quite a bit better than that on the 951 SRAM build. I've ridden a Socom a lot which I like but seems a bit steep and wobbly at times.

Just wondering what you all think about geometry/ride/size etc. of each bike.

Preferences, suggestions, haters, input, whatever, I'm just trying to get as much information on the bikes as I can since I haven't been able to see both of them in person (I've tooled around a bit on a 951 in a parking lot but that's it).

Thanks!
