Hi everyone,

Been looking to get a bike and I think I pretty much settled on this one . I spoke to the guy at evans both thought good bike.

Here's the kicker, whilst browsing bikes again on website I looked at the Scott range again (I had considered them the first time) and saw this one, . It's got me thinking, does it have better components? Is it a better bike? Should i just stick with my first choice?

Any help and advice would be great
