Trek owns Gary Fisher, and since both bikes are at the same price point, they are almost exact with the exception of paint and geometry. You should really test ride both bike and find out which is more comfortable for you.
The Trek uses a more traditional approach to their geometries, whereas the GF uses "Genisis Geometry" which utilizes a longer top-tube and shorter chainstays. Generally, people with longer torsoes prefer the Genisis Geometry. Personally, I don't like it, but then again I'm not the one buying the bike. Both are great bikes for the money and there is nothing wrong with either one.
