I was faced with the same choice a week ago, I went with trance x1.

Verry Happy. Did the Monster this weekend. Still smilling and improved on my time by 50 mins.

Take the newer bike.

 

2008 is so last decade...

 

I have an Anthem X1, so am biased.

I'm with splat. Also biased - have a Trance X2

 

 

 

Not too keen on proprietary systems (brain etc...)

Giant...less frills, value for money and built to GO the distance.

Specialized...Bling and overated, the wannabe's bike!!
