    You have two different types of bikes there. One is a DH bike, and the other is a XC bike.

    No, one is a long-legged trail/light freeride bike and the other is a purpose-built four-cross bike. Go with the Coiler. It's built for what you are looking for a bike to do. The geometry on a four-cross bike is very specific to its use.

    I would get the Howler. It would make a mean slope style bike.

    But fortunately, it's not limited to ONE use. I know you have seen highrevs' pics of our buddy on his red/white Howler, riding XC, DH, FR, DJ, and even some FJ. It's a great all-purpose bike if you can live with a single chainring.
