Giant XO rides more like a FS whereas the Scalpel 2 is STILL more of a soft tail on the trail. You'll be able to ride longer on the XO but the Scalpel will feel faster on smooth trails.

Get tough! Find one of the newest Prophets left and get it at a great price. There may be one left at some LBS. The bikes you are looking at are both great but you may want something tougher and still have cash left for upgrades, nite lights, GPS, back pack, etc. Made in USA helps.
