Seizing is very personal. I guess that you would be able to rede both frames. How does your old bike feel? If it is good nr. 1 sounds like the way to go, if you think your currend bike is a bit on the small size you pick the nr. 2.
Something else to consider is the height of the toptube. On the nr. 2 frame your handlebars will probably be a little higher than on the nr. 1.
Best advise I could give you is to take your old bike with you to a dealer and have him look at it and discuss what you do and don't like about it and how you can correct that with a new frame.

By the way, the supercross is a real nice frame, I think you will be happy with it!
