In the market for a new XC hardtail. I am 5'9'' and 160lbs. I ride in the Canadian Rocky Mountains at an intermediate level 2/2 or 3/3 for difficulty/technicality scoring. I am wondering what some experts thoughts on deciding between these two bikes would be. I have access to both for very similar price point. Each is linked to the URL's below.
