    08 Giant Trance X2 or 08 Trek Fuel EX8

    Both the bikes are for sale locally on craigslist for $1,100. Which is the better bike/bang for the buck? Any comments greatly appreciated...

    I returned my '11 EX 5 to get a better bang for my buck component wise and wondering which of these is more worth the money.

    Er, well, the main difference between the two bikes is really the Maestro dual pivot on the Giant vs the ABP (I think) on the Trek. And that's really an issue of personal opinion. This being the Giant board, I suspect most here prefer the Maestro. The specs on these are pretty similar. It looks like the Giant has a double crank on it, so that might factor in your calculation. I can't really say for you, other than to say go with whatever suspension system you like better.
