Define "everything" please.

And don't trade.
Yours has a sealed bottom bracket at least, I have a friend who rides one and still had nearly no problems with it.
And they both have a standard headset so I would say trading is a big no go.
You want some real advice? Save up money and eventually buy parts when they break, like I saw the sprocket on both yours and the subrosa and they're made out of tin foil.
