Trek is so good for the brands they buy up too. They did such a good job with Lemond!...also cannondale is now owned by pacific, and company that destroying good companies for their own wallet.
Wouldn't you think that though he's not an MTB'er, Trek must be better since it's the brand Lance Armstrong rides?out of these two companys which has the best proformance in your personal experience??? cannondale or trek..mountain bikes.

I worked as a service mgr for bicycle shops in So. California. for 6 years in the late 80's to early 90's.Until you've been burned by a "lifetime warranty", you can't fully appreciate what a load of crap some of them are. It's not the purchaser's/owner's lifetime. Many times, it's merely the usable lifetime of the product.
Well things have changed then, Because frame warranties used to specifically say "lifetime of the original owner".If you are twenty, should you expect your aluminum MTB to last for sixty years or more?
As far as I understand, "Lifetime" means the reasonable lifetime of a product. For shoes like Nike or Vans, that's three months, or "one season". For cycling products such as clothing, that might mean a cycling "season" of one year. For a frame or component that is not used competitively, and not abused, I would expect somewhere between three and five years. Also keep in mind that the warranty is nearly always for "defects in materials or workmanship".
My point was that no one should buy a product based on a "lifetime warranty", expecting that it will either last forever, or that the manufacturer will replace it.
