Help me choose a bike.

I haven't been riding bikes for very long. I am twenty years old. I have rode dirtbikes since i was five so i'm pretty comfortable on two wheels. I'm looking for a new bike i think i have it narrowed down to two, its between the Motobecane 700DS or Dawes Roundhouse 2500. Please tell me what one you would go with and why. I currently have a Walmart Mongoose XR-75.

Motobecane 700DS - http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/...ne/700ds_x.htm

Dawes Roundhouse 2500 - http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/dawes/rh_25.htm

Thanks for all the help guys!

URT on the Motobecane is a dated suspension design. The Dawes 4-bar is better in comparison.
