$6000 is a pretty good budget. Are you after opinions on just those 2 bikes, or anything in your price range?

What sort of riding? I assume trail biased. There are plenty to choose from. Your budget is very healthy too.

I recently (dec) upgraded my mtb, but with a smaller budget, and looked at several. In the end they were much the same and it came down to which one looked good, felt the right size and fitted my budget, from a brand with LBS support. I ruled out GT due to aesthetics, Giant due to an irrational brand dislike, Cannondale 'just because'. I ended up with close race between Stumpjumper and a Remedy. A previous year model Remedy won out because it stretched the budget the furthest and was almost identical to new year stock anyway.
