    2011 cannondale sl3 vs 2004 giant nrs2

    I'm having a tough time picking between these two bikes. I ride mostly singletrack cross-country trails

    2011 cannondale sl3 $600.

    Bike is stock with sram x5 drivetrain


    2004 giant nrs2 $575

    Rockshock xc-32 fork with lockout
    Lx drivetrain
    Avid elixer r front brake
    Hayes sole rear brake
    Mavic wheels
    Wtb weirwolf tires
    Vision 90mm stem

    Anyone and all input would be greatly appreciated.

    Cannondale? Cause I'm not sure if you would need that Rear suspension for your trails. Although I must say, the GIant have pretty good parts too. IMO, I'd probably go with the Cannondale specially its 7 years ahead of the Giant.

    C'dale would be a better choice. NRS was a good bike back in the day now there are too many good designs to choose from, if you want a full suspension get anthem or trance.
