It looks like the 7.4s have entry level off road bike components, the specialized components may actually work better. The Trek has better brakes, however.

The riding geometries are a bit different, some like the specialized ride more that Trek, some otherwise, some don't care. Just saying that the difference in rider satisfaction due to geometries may far outweigh any relatively minor differences in components. But if you have already ridden both, never mind.
