    Giant Lust with upgrades vs. Giant Anthem?

    Hey I'm curious on your guy's thoughts...

    I'm from BMX so I'm totally new to MTBing..

    I'm looking at getting either a second hand Anthem SX 27.5 from 2015 or a Lust 27.5 2 from 2014...I know the Anthem is a better stock bike but the owner of the lust has barely ridden it and has given it new Crank Brothers Cobalt 3 Wheels, new Maxxis DHF and Ardent tyres running tubeless, new 1x10 Drivetrain with 11-36 cassette, new M615 Deore Brakes and a new Fox Talas 120-140 fork. The owner of the Anthem also gave it a new Nuke proof Vector Comp saddle, new Nuke proof neutron pedals , new Nuke proof Grips, new Shimano Deore Shifter and alsao swapped front derailleur to a narrow wide single speed chainring... but it also has a dent in the wheel that's been straightened and scratches on the frame, showing it's been ridden (probably ridden hard )

    So with the amount of upgrades on the Giant Lust and the fact it's barely been ridden... is this a better choice? Thanks so so much!! From a total idiot when it comes to bikes.

    Of the two, based on the description of the wheel, etc on the Anthem, I'd take the Lust.
