    Giant Roam 3/2 vs Fuji 1.5 Traverse

    Hey again everyone! I've been searching through the interwebs again and decided to redirect my search away from trek since the Fuji and Giant brands seem to offer a little bit extra for a little less price. Here is my dilemma between these two - there aren't dealers for any of these within about 70 miles, and none of the shops carry both, so... I'm looking at the traverse on performance bike, and the roam I would have to try to find a dealer that has one... which is proving to be hard.

    As far as paper specs go -which is the better deal for the money? Which should I focus on exploring first?

    I have a local trek dealer, but the reason I'm not considering it is because of funds. I really want a lockout feature on the suspension and the cheapest one to have it is the 8.3, but for the same price it looks like the roam has better brakes?

    Anyway, sorry for my newbness - thanks for all the help you guys are!

    I do not know enough about components to give yo an answer but I would suggest you check Craigslist... I'm not sure on the Fuji, but I see 2 or 3 yr old Roam's on my local Craigslist all the time.
