    Which is better equipped?

    I am new to the mountain biking scene so please ignore anything I say stupid! I have been doing a lot of research and talking to other riders about upgrading soon. I looked at the following two bikes but there is a big difference in price and was hoping someone could tell me if the two are comparably equipped? I think they are similar in types of bikes but why almost $2,000.00 difference in MSRPs?

    Trek Remedy 9.7 650B
    Giant Trance Advanced SX 27.5

    From a quick glance the price difference could be the X01 drivetrain, and Kashima coated suspension on the Giant..oh, and the brakes too.
