    Diamondback sortie 1 or Trek fuel ex 5

    I'm turning 40 next month (YIKES) my wife is going to get me a new bike. I'm considering the Trek fuel ex 5, but was wondering if the Diamondback sortie 1 may be a better purchase. I will be going to Diablo bike park to do some nice dh riding. I also need the all around mountain bike, climbing, street riding, single track. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. By the way I'm a big guy. 5' 11" 235 Lbs....yea a little heavy.

    The trek is a better suspension design (remains active under braking), better fork, and better parts spec. Unless the diamondback feels way better to you than the trek, there doesn't seem to be any reason not to get the trek.
