So after a 10 year break away from Mountain Biking, I am finally returning, which all starts with getting a new bike.

I have a budget of around £1000, and have narrowed it down to two, both of which I have seen, tried and just can't make up my mind. Any help/pointers would be gratefully received:

Orange 2010 Crush

Scott Scale 50

Both similarly priced, and both look and feel great. If anyone has any other bike suggestions feel free to let me know!
