I tested Trek, Specialized, Kona, and Giant. At the price point I was looking at, around $700, while I'm no expert, they all seemed of equal quality. Slightly different specs of course, but they all certainly seemed like equally fine rides. What eventually swayed me was I settled on the 27.5 size so the Giant won (there wasn't a 27.5 in the other brands in any of my LBS's yet). I lucked out as I also liked some of the components better on it than some of the others, as well as the color(always a bonus!). I don't think you could go wrong with that Revel.
