Trying to decide between these two. The Marin is an aluminum frame but has many upgrades (fox float fork, Formula RX brakes, XT Drivetrain...etc). The Giant is Carbon and has upgraded wheels (ZTR Arch EX) but not so much component wise (Rock Shox Recon, Elixir 1 brakes, X7 rear der, Sram Cranks).
This will be my first 29er so the ride is really important. Do not care about racing but love really technical riding, fast single track, and jumping off reasonable jumps.
Both are the same money.
Any and all advice is welcome.
