Don't take this the wrong way, but seriously do a search - this was asked in a previous thread a couple months ago in either the "what bike to buy" or "TREK" forum and had some very good replies regarding both bikes. If I can find the link I'll post it for you.

[EDIT ] Damn I can't believe it only took about 3 minutes to find the thread

I work at a Trek/Giant store/dealer and I was just in the market for a new bike myself. I've driven both and enjoyed riding both. While the Fuel Ex has a carbon bar, and is made of ZR9000 aluminum, the Trance seems more nimble, and faster. The Trance is also decked out with a RaceFace crank, stem, and bar.

The Trance has Maestro as well, which definetly helps with stability, pedaling, and overall performance.

They are around the same price, and even being the Trek man that I am, the Trance is a better buy.
