I've got the Trek 4300, and I beat the heck out of it regularly on trails, hills, and more serious mountain biking. I love it, and certainly recommend it. I would say, however, that you could save yourself some money by just getting the regular v-brake model. Disc brakes are probably overkill unless you're really hurtling down super technical mountain trails. As a point of reference, I'm 6'2", 210 lbs and the 19.5" 4300 fits me beautifully.
