Felt 65 vs. Mondonico EL-OSglobalhelipimp

Well, I've finally decided on either a new Felt 65 ($1100) or a used Mondonico EL-OS ($1200 http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3613599119&category=7298 ).

I'm curious to see what your thoughts would be. The Mondonico listed is in a store about 15 minutes from where I live and I went to see it today. The frame and components are amazing, but style is no where near as nice as the Felt (IMO).

Suggestions, comments, criticisms? ALL APPRECIATED.

Any other bikes I should be checking out?

Do any online retailers sell Felt road bikes?

Thanks.

Aluminum VS one of the finest steel tubesets ever,and built by a master..A no brainer for me,but maybe you are an aluminum junkie.Ride em and decide.

The Mondocino is a nice frameset,but it's 8 speed and considering the age is overpriced,IMHO.

Has some really top end steel and alu framesets for less than what you are considering....F.Moser, Ciocc, Coppi, Olmo, Carrera....could always go peek at GVHbikes.com for other offerings. Cinelli lugged steel, Landshark, to name a few.
