    Yeti or Giant

    I want to buy a bike mostly for trail riding, single track, and to get me to and from school. I don't have a lot of $$ and would like to keep my costs around $500. On Craigslist I found a 1997 Yeti FRO asking $700, a 2004 Giant VT-2 asking $600, and a 2006 Trek Remedy 5 $600 firm. The Giant has new Fox float shocks with lockout on front and rear along with a few other upgrades.

    Any suggestions? I must admit that I know very little about bikes.

    The yeti has the following set up:
    Fork: Fox Talas RLC (not sure on the year) but it has lockout, travel adjustments etc
    Chris King NoThreadset Headset (red)
    Stem: Easton EA50 120mm 10degree
    SRAM X-9 Triggers and rear derailer
    Shimano Deore XT Brake Levers and rear brake
    Easton EA70 handlebars
    Yeti grips (lock-on)
    XTR Seatpost
    XT Front derailer
    SDG Ti-Fly white saddle with the Yeti logo and colors (team issue only)
    Chris King Rear hub (super nice) Silver laced to a Mavic 517 rim
    XT Hollowtech II Cranks

    The Giant has the following set up:
    Easton seat post and Easton carbon fiber handle bar
    WTB Lazier seat
    Shimano Deore XT derailer
    Mavic X223 disk rims
    Kenda kinetics off-road only stick-e tires
    Hayes Nine 8" front disk brake 6" rear disk brake
    NEW Fox float shocks --front and rear shocks both adjustable with lockout that gives the bike the option for a firmer ride.

    Both your selection are pretty old. Try my link for research. You can get one at reasonable price. From the link do a search on Cannondale Rush or Prophet as well. good luck.
