Hello Steve,
Both these bikes have 28/38/48 chainrings coupled with a 14-28 freewheel, so the gearing is the same. There is £20 difference in the retail price so whilst the Pinelake has suspension forks to the Mercury's rigid, the Mercury has an alloy Ahead stem and different gear mech and shifters together with 32 hole hubs instead of 36.
For the type of riding you have mentioned I question if you would need suspension (which adds weight) and as DocB says tyres can be changed, thogh the ones fitted are not knobbly treaded ones.
