I've been doing a lot of research on my next bike, and I'm wondering if anyone has ridden any of these two bikes. I ride mostly in Minnesota, so its mostly cross country trails, but I do like to ride bike parks every once in a while. So... if anyone has ridden either of these bikes, how well do they climb, in comparison to a full XC bike? And also if by some chance anyone has ridden both, how do they both compare?

Thanks for your time
