    Need some feedback on a FR/Slope bike decision

    So I am looking for a freeride/slopestyle bike. Basically, I want a burly slopestyle bike that can hold up to some DH runs. I really like the Transition Bottlerocket, Intense SS, and Rocky Mtn Slayer SS 396. The thing is, I want a bike that can also be used to climb (not stupid long climbs like XC, but capable of reaching almost any trailhead/top of a DH run) and strong enough to hold up at the bike park or some crazy singletrack. I'd like to hear what you guys have to say about these bikes, both positives and negatives.

    Those are definitely some beefy bikes... are you comfortable climbing with a 36-40lb bike?

    those are some good bikes, but there are a number of others in that realm that you may want to consider as well.
