Trek Fuel EVO or Giant MAESTRO?

Cant decide which bikes to get, I am between Giant Trance X1,2,3 & 29er or Trek Fuel EX8

I am getting a used one fully upgraded.
Thanks

Get the one that fits best. All are very good bikes.

I am surprised to hear you have such a complete line of bikes available to you second hand.

It is hard to choose, giant one climbs hills like a goat while the trek one won championships couple years ago, one is heavier than the other but i got a good deal for both bikes fully upgraded between 2009 and 2013 models. I would like to read reviews from professional riders like you before i take final decission.
thanks

If you are weakest when climbing pick the better climber.

Always pick a bike that's better at what your not so good at...

It's a zen thing

Fit comes first, always..

Trek bikes with DRCV shocks on the full-floater rear suspension work pretty good, but I do think Giant's Maestro is superior.

You would need to ride both bikes on a trail to feel the difference.
