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.

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

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.
