Hi
I'm in the market for a new bike and have 4 in mind
2012 Giant XTC 29er 1
2014 Trek X-Caliber 8 29er
2014 Cube LTD Pro 29er
2014 Focus Black Forest 29er

or should I go for a 650B

Mainly do X-country riding and currently have a 10 year old Giant Terrago

Any suggestions or comments appreciated

Couple things....
- Budget?
- Terrain?
- Riding style?
- FS or HT?
- Build or buy?

You say that you mainly do xc riding but what does that mean and where are you located. My XC riding is probably much different than someone that lives in Florida (I live near Lake Tahoe, CA). So little more indepth information can go a long way.

Live in Ireland HT bike all the above bikes are coming in around 1000 euros ($1300) so that's the budget give or take a 100, terrain is grassy trails and some mountain forest trails but not to technical, open to either buy or build Style Cross Country

Trek X-Cal.
But for $1300 you could buy the X-Cal 9 instead.

You should also look at On-One bike since you are close by (relatively) and there is a nice review of the Titus EVO 29er on the first page of this forum (Titus is owned by On-One/Planet-X).
Yeah, I just read that review. Seems like a great bike. My LBS is bringing it and I will be testing it soon! Check it out OP :)
