Hi, I'm an intermediate level biker looking for a good starter mountain bike. I've had a BMX bike for the past few years which I have used on short trails and dirt jumps on a track, but I'm looking for a better bike that can handle longer, single track trails with rough terrain and jumps/obstacles that span a few miles.

These are two bikes that I have already ordered for 25% off on the ***** Sporting Goods website for Cyber Monday(these are my only two options). Which bike do you think is better suited for my kind of riding, that will last at least a few years with the least amount of issues? I tried finding sites to compare these bikes but I found a lot of mixed results. Please help! Thanks.
