Buy nice or buy twice; I was in the identical position early this year, Surface vs. Rootdown BA. Waffled back and forth for a month, then succombed to my logical side and went in on the Rootdown thinking that was that.  I was and still perfectly happy with the bike itself, but just knowing that there is something with that bit of extra je ne sais quois within reach (or just a tiny bit out of reach), its hard to keep your desires from wandering. Here I am some 9 months later and pondering the same question of moving up to a Surface. Had I spent the extra few hundred bucks at the outset, life would be gravy right now. Now I'd stand to lose a bunch on the BA. First world problems to the biggest extent.  I have no worries about lusting after a Ti-Surface though. That is so far out of reach for me--even IF it was locally made by Dekerf, it would be difficult to justify as it's still 'just' a $3500+ hardtail at the end of the day.
