    need help on a new bike

    I have been into mtn biking in the past and getting back in to it. I've had a trek 8000 hardtail for the past 10 years and i'm ready to move into full susp. I consider myself a pretty advanced rider. I want a bike that I can upgrade over time. I don't have alot of money to spend so I started looking at the motobecane fantom trail ds. The comps are sold out otherwise I would consider that. The frames are the same right? just some cheaper parts on the trail. I've had some people tell me I would be wasting my money on a motobecane, saying the fantom trail wouldn't be any better than my trek. is this true? could i just upgrade the parts over time, or am I just better off saving up to buy a giant trance x4? The moto is 799 and the Giant 1300 thoughts? thanks

    I've recently purchased the DS, an upgrade from the Trek 4300 and am happy w/ her. Not much heavier than the Trek Y's. Have up'd the brakes to hydros and looking to replace the rear shock for an RS Ario 2.2.
