GT Saddleback vs. NRS Giant

I am getting a new bike soon and I dont know what to get. I've been riding a GT saddleback for the past few years its a really great bike and hasn't really given me any problems other then the ocassional chain problems. So I'm debating whether to get a brand new GT Saddleback or a brand new NRS Giant. I have never ridden a Giant so i'm kinda skeptical on that deal, but they look great and I wouldn't mind having one. But I just don't know which way to go... which do you guys think I should get? Also, how much does a Giant cost?

I don't think GT makes the Saddleback anymore, ya might want to check the GT website.

I love my NRS. I would highly recommend it. It does everything Giant claims it can do.

The Aluminum base model retails for $1400 US. Worth every penny. After that you are in carbon fiber versions that are $2500 or more.
