Trek EX-8 vs Titus ML vs Giant Trance
Looking to get a new full suspension for upcoming move to Idaho. Mainly ride XC and actually like to climb, but what goes up must come down. Not too aggressive on big drops and such, occasionally race but mostly just for fun at the sport level.
Trying to decide between these bikes in the 2500 range:
Titus ML (slightly more expensive than the others)
Giant Trance 0 '07 (saw for 2500)
Giant Trance X1 or Trance 1 ('08)
should mention that I have been riding a Fisher Procaliber hard tail for about 6 years. Great bike and I plan on hanging on to it.
if you can ride all 3...DO IT.
see for yourself which one makes you feel the most confident.
they are all good bikes, and component spec will vary as much as opinions about which one is "the best".
if all 3 are new, i personally like the trance x1 best based on ride quality/price ratio
