    I just got my GF Tassajara yesterday. I rode both of these bikes and I personally liked the GF. The guy at the LBS also suggested I get the GF over the trek. I rode the bike almost 25 miles yesterday and loved it. Im also riding in a XC race next weekend.

    Neither one of these bikes are going to be considered "light" in the racing world, so you may as well forget that. They are probably at minimum, 6 lbs heavier than a light XC bike. With that said, i have a Trek 6000 that is the same frame as the 6500. I really love it, and it is a lot faster than my Trek 4300's.

    I wasn't concerned to much about weight. I'm guessing that they are both pretty much the same weight because they both have nearly identical components and similar frames.
