Between those specific 2 I'd go with the Conquest because that Motobecane has 27" tires which limits your choices for future component selection. The Conquest has always been a nice bike, right since its introduction. A couple of my teammates ride/rode Conquest frames.

The Conquest does have a tire-size limitation, though. Don't plan on going much larger than a 35mm tire with it, especially if you're fitting fenders on there. It's a straight up CX frame and not designed around monstercross tires (38 - 45mm).
