For 100 bucks more I'd go with the one you like more, even if it is just the color as the final factor. I'm not too familiar with those particular bikes, but they're both respectable brands, and I'm sure you'll find about the same quality in each of them.

Being a Giant owner and having a biased opinion I say go with the Giant. The bikes are well made and they stand behind their product

If you like the way both bikes ride and they both fit right, then get the one that appeals to your taste in looks.

i'd go ride one for a bit before i choose one..choose teh one that feels the most comfortable and if u still want teh one which is ur favorite color get it then but just be happy with your purchase cuz its hard to go back on it.
i am also half biased...go for the giant
