Total beginner here.

Please help me pick between Carrera Crossfire 3 Hybrid Bike and Specialized 2014 Crosstrail mainly for commuting to work and some cobble road rides on the old town.

The Specialized 2014 Crosstrail Sport Disc Hybrid looks nicer, and appears to be higher spec. But is it worth the £100 extra?

Many thanks in advance :smile:
