    As far as component quality they are both in the same ballpark. The Scott frame description gives you a better idea of its quality but it's pretty much a toss-up. At this price level the frames are probably not much different overall. Scott does make nice bikes where as Dawes are a little more generic (just a little tho). Test riding them both would be the best way to decide but if you can't do that pick the one that looks the best to you. Personally I think the Scott looks the coolest of the two.

    i think the dawes bike looks more professional, and it was £400 so shouldn't that be better than a £330 bike
