    New guy needs your opinion!

    Looking to get my first bike. Wondering which one of these bikes would be the better bike?

    I would go with the Dawes, mostly because it has disc brakes. There not great disc brakes, but there probably just as good as the V-Brakes on the Moto. The Dawes gets the +1 because of the disc hubs. You could remove the rotor and caliper spend 90 dollars and get a set of Avid BB7 disc brakes. The stock cables and levers would be fine with them.

    Look like similar components. It would be nice if you could ride one and see which fits better. Maybe check out local bike store at bikes in this price range.
