Cant say I'd buy either of those as first choice, they both look a little underdone. But I dont know what your ride style or your budget is let alone what pricing is like in the UK. Perhaps if you can tell us more about these variables someone who is familiar with the UK market can guide you towards something suitable from a bike shop. Giant, Haro, Kona and Specialized are popular brands around here, Giant in particular should have something near your price range.

i'd have to agree, i took a look at those bikes a little while ago and they didnt seem too reliable.
good luck
