Without links, I would hazard a guess that at the same price point, the Cube will always have a better spec.

Trek tend to be stingy with specs. Not as bad as Specialized but getting there.

I would expect the opposite - I bought the Trek 6500 2012 on release because nothing else at a grand could match the specs, simply superb at the price point - Reba RL forks, xt mech, shimano hubs etc etc the Cubes weren't getting anywhere near. Having said that my mate was also buying at the same time for a little less cash and I recall the Cubes had very competitive specs when he was looking at an Acid or Giant - he ended getting the Giant XTC because he's a fanboy. I've not checked the specs again but both are good bikes - I can recommend Trek from experience but you might want wider bars!
