Giant Talon 1 vs VooDoo Bizango?

Complete newbie but want to try out mountain biking. Which of the 2 bikes would you recommend and why? Medium frame on Giant, 20" frame on voodoo, both 29 wheels.

    Before you decide on which bike, first decide the frame size that fits you best.

    Use your height and inseam measurements then check them against their respective sizing guides.

    The Bizango is a better buy - better forks, better tyres. It really depends on availability and whether or not you are swayed by the badge.

    Both models very scarce in my local stores. Reserved a VooDoo Bizango in a store 50km away, just waiting on the bike to work paperwork to clear before I pick it up. I haven't had an opportunity to sit in it. I'm 5'11,inside leg seam is about 31.5 inches or 80cm.... Is a 20" frame too big?
