I don't need to elaborate on anything. You've stated the exact same thing about one bike being about $700 more than another one numerous times. It sounds like an ad for the cheaper bike, and if you haven't figured out by now that the answer is "buy it", I can't help you.
Ding ding ding ding ding! We Have a Winner!!! 100% agreed, the OP is needessly re-iterating the same talking points, without really saying what it is exactly they are themselves looking for in a bike.
