Wheelsets and other hardware between...

Comparing
www.giant-bicycles.com/us/bikes-fastroad-sl
to
http://www.trekbikes.com/us/en_US/bi...olorCode=black

Assuming the "feel" and fit are extremely comparable, what I can't sift out by reading company web pages and reader reviews which bike overall is better, based on two key factors.
- How are the wheelsets/spoke count/spoke gauge (pretty sure both have double wheel wall construction)
- Gearing quality

I am ok with either kind of brake assembly that these models might come with.

Always been very happy with my Giant, but need to upgrade from my standard Hybrid model. Not interested in true Road bike model.

Thoughts?
Thanks everyone, Tim
