    Help choosing between 2 bikes

    Hey All,

    I'm a complete novice when it comes to looking at specs and knowing which bike is the best to buy, but with my budget and options locally I've narrowed down to 2:

    The Scott Scale 980
    https://www.scott-sports.com/ca/en/p...icle=265222006

    Or the Specialized Rockhopper Pro:
    https://www.specialized.com/ca/en/wo...=240166-129253

    Both are identical pricing. I can't try either bike out in person as my LBS has to order them.
    One big difference is 1x11 versus 2x10 - but even still I don't know as my last bike was 3x9.
    It's been a few years since i've been riding but can't wait to get back into it! Mostly trails, pretty easy going stuff, and some long distance rides in the future..

    Really appreciate your thoughts!

    For me personally, 1x11 for the win.
