That giant has a better component package than the C'dale, but more importantly, have you ridden either model? The ride will tell you a lot more than the specs will...

Scalpel feels more like a hardtail. Since you already have a hardtail I would say get the bike that is most different from it so you can cover a larger spectrum of conditions/courses. I love my anthem and depending on how you set up the suspension its great for both racing and general trail riding, where the scalpel is more of a race only bike. This is a bit of an exaggeration of the differences between the two bikes; of course you can use the scalpel for general riding as well. However, I personally find the anthem more versatile.
