Really? You guys would take a Trek single pivot over a Giant Maestro suspension? I'd take the Giant any day. The Maestro suspension is better under braking, less pedal feedback, linear shock rate and more effiecient at pedaling. I'd say that the Maestro design is just as good as Horst (maybe even better and coming from a Horst guy, that means a lot!)
The only thing Trek has is the simplcity of maintenance and that is only a benefit if you ride in really muddy areas all the time.

I'd go with an Enduro.

Hmm, since i realise people kept saying about pedal kickback. Could you guys tell me about it? Cause i just want to know about what is pedal kickback and how to feel it?

And between Trek Remedy 6, Giant Reign 2, Santa Cruz Heckler year 06 which one do you think is the best?

Giant Reign or Specialized Enduro.
Giant if the riding is All Mountain/XC or the Enduro if the riding is more All Mountain/Free Ride.
BTW: Only the Enduro's with a 6" fork. Anything shorter & the head angle is too steep to have any fun

Hmm, its a close call cause enduro has almost the same specs as reign. And I dont know which 1!!!!. I want a bike that is good for abuse. its either a Giant Reign 2 or specialized Enduro SX Trail 1 or 2

If for abuse, definately the Specialized Enduro
If you want a bike that will handle abuse, go with the heckler. That bike is burly. The pivot points are huge. They seriously need no matinence and they last forever.
