    Never even heard of the Trek, but I like RM alot better than Trek for freeride/DJ.

    The Trek is an odd one, never heard of it before. I probably say that the RM is the better bike.

    Alright, thanks for your imput so far. I was already leaning towards the RM, but I just wanted to see what others thought of the bike.

    RM. Simply because I don't think trek has proven the strength of its freeride hardtail. I personally would give it a couple of years. Where the RM has been proven since early on.
