    Cant make up my mind!!

    I'm in the market for a new hardtail and I cannot make up my mind between these two bikes. I've taken both for test rides, and I like both of them. I am pretty sure I know how this is going to go, but I've been in my head for too long and I need a fresh perspective. Thanks!

    You should add a 2019 Rocky Mountain Vertex to that list...solid bike.

    I had a 2018 Fathom 29 2 and wasn’t a fan of it. If you had to choose between those two, I would get the Trek.

    easy, I would get a custom Ti hardtail. Stock geometry is terrible and carbon is good for 650b bikes but performs poorly on 29ers

    What was it that you didnt like? I almost bought the 2018 Fathom 29 2, but decided to wait another year.

    The chainstays are too long on the Giant. I would say get the Roscoe but if you want my real opinion I say get a Trek Stache 5 instead.
    Change begins by doing something different.
