Hey guys!

One of those usual boring threads, but since cannot find a decent answer anywhere:

About me:

Serious rider, not for sports, but for commuting and travelling: hit about 300 miles a month
Ride on bumpy, bad condition roads at high speeds, bad weather and totalled already 2 road cycles in 8 months, which is why I decided to go for MTB

Bikes I am considering:

Pro:
Really like the design
Want to try out full suspension
Expect it to perform well on rough roads
Good Price

Cons:
Mechanics Brakes
Since it is a cheap full suspension I expect faults soon

Pro:
Like the design
Heard good reviews, expecting the bike to last long
Good Price

Cons:
Not sure about the size? They have 20 inch frame and I am a 6'4 lad

Pro: Seems sturdy
Cons: Worse specks than Calibre?

Also checked out the woodoo, but did not like the design so I think it is a no. So what could you recommend folks?
