    Which bike?

    I'm looking at these two bikes; a diamondback approach (700c X 40 tires+ some kind of trigger shifting) and a Giant Rincon (26" wheels Shimano 200GS shifting, Cro-moly Frame). I mainly want them for offroad riding - I have two road bikes - one is an old Schwinn continental with cyclocross tires, which I'm currently using on trails, so it would probably see both less technical mtb trails as well as some occasional gravel rail-trails. I'm wondering what the difference, if any would be between these bikes - does the 26" vs. 700c make a difference or will the components any better on one?
    Thanks

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.
