    Trek Mamba WSD or Giant Rainer

    I went to the local Trek/Giant dealer and rode a 2011 Trek Mamba WSD and Giant Rainer. Both bikes rode great - the fit was much better than the Specialized Rockhopper 29er Comp(they didn't have a Carve in stock). To me, both the Mamba and the Rainer were pretty comparable. Between the 2 bikes, which would be the better of the two, as far as components, etc... for a newbie, riding on singletracks, gravel roads, nothing technical? BTW, I went to look at a Talon 29er- but there was nothing in stock, usually men's bikes seem to fit me better, but the Mamba WSD and Rainer were a great fit. Thank you
