    Both excellent bikes and you won't go wrong with either.
    You only need two tools: WD40 and Duck Tape.
    If it doesn't move and should, use the WD40.
    If it shouldn't move and does, use the tape.

    Neither. Get a Giant Anthem! :lol::wink:

    Seriously though, have you considered one? LOVELY bike for XC, even though I am a little biased.....

    The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.
