I'm looking for opinions and reviews of the above two bikes, which would you choose? why? Etc.

I'm looking to upgrade from my 1990's steel framed 5 geared Raleigh Hybrid. I currently do about 20 miles commuting each day, on roads and gravel surfaced cycle paths.

I'm really enjoying my cycling and am looking to start doing some more miles over the summer. I live at the foot of Cheddar gorge, and therefore have very hilly terrain. The 5 gears are a bit of a struggle to be honest.

I'm 5'4" size 10 frame, if that helps with any opinions.

Thanks, for any help, it's much appreciated.
