hey guys, so I know I am new here but I was hoping for some advice from some fellow big guys

Here's the scoop, I am little over 6'4" tall and about 230lbs. I am about to purchase a full suspension bike for here on the front range in colorado. I want a bike that will do anything.
I have narrowed it down to the trek rumblefish 1 and the trek remedy 8. I want the bike that will help make me a better rider. I have read some complaints about taller riders on the remedy, it just seems like the 21.5" frame for that bike looks really stretched.

anyway, If anyone out there has any experience with these bikes I would love to hear about it!! and pics of the ride are welcome too

thanks everybody!!!
