Looking to upgrade to a full suspension trail/all mountain bike. Both bikes are basically the same price after tax/shipping. Which one do you think will climb better? Which do you think is better overall. Geometry is similar on both bikes. I've read good things about maestro suspension but don't know much about the Santa Cruz suspension. I can get the Giant from the LBS but I'm concerned about the Giant shock on the back. I can get the Santa Cruz online for a decent price but concerned about the 2 year warranty on the frame (compared to lifetime on giant) and the extra travel may not be needed. Any opinions are greatly appreciated.
