How much climbing do you do?
You realise that the Giant has a compact crankset, whereas the Trek you've posted doesn't?
Go Trek if it suits you better, but make sure you get the gearing you want too
*shrugs* 8% -> 11% is acceptable on a traditional crankset 39x25 up Full Monty or Devils Elbow is sweet
For you maybe....but speaking for those of us with more limited fitness and ability, the compact is VERY handy
