Trek 6700 vs. Giant XTC

I think I have narrowed the search to two bikes - the Trek 6700 and the Giant XTC 0.

Both have Juicy 3 discs, Recon SL shocks, and similar derailleurs (XT vs. X-9).

Opinions on these two bikes?

Which one feels better to you? They have very different geometries.

I personally don't know about the Trek, but the XTC is a really nimble bike. It's a lot of fun to flick around and is great for XC. You should check out the alliance model. Same components but it's half carbon.

I would say just take them both for a test ride. One should have a better feel than the other with its cockpit length.
