I live near dalby forest and regularly do the red and black route there. i currently ride a specialized hardrock sport disk 06 and i am wanting to replace it with a full suspension bike. i want to spend around £1000. i want it to be able to climb and descend well

I am unsure about what bike to get but I have been looking at the Specialized Fsr Xc comp and the Trek fuel EX 5.5 but still not sure about them.
any suggestions for other bikes?
