    They are both good bikes. I have the Trail Sl3 29er and love it but it may not be right for you. Ride them both and see. My LBS wanted to put me on the scale team but they are unavailable on backorder. So if you currently have a bike and want to wait for it then get the scale. IMHO you can't go wrong with either one.
