For the curious, I'm currently comparing a Trek Fuel 70 (or perhaps a Trek Fuel 80)and a KHS XC604. They seem to be using the same level of componentry from two competing major brands, but I can't figure if there is any real difference between the brands. Reading all the online forums and review sites it's starting to sound like a Toyota vs. Honda or Windows vs. Mac kind of debate.
If anyone here (or their friends) has an opinion on either these or other bikes (or the brands involved), I would love to hear it.
