I want to buy a decent new mountain bike through the cycle to work scheme. I have narrowed it down to 2 options:

1. Cannondale Trail SL 29er 1 2013 Price £1,080
2. Cannondale Trail SL 29er 2 2014 Price £980

I am a complete novice when it comes to components but here are the details.

Is the older SL1 worth the extra cash based on the components above? I appreciate all the advice! The bike will be used for a daily commute of about 6miles each way in a busy uk city (Birmingham).

Many thanks
