New guy needs opinions

New guy here in Loveland CO. I have a Fisher hardtail and been riding for couple months. Want to move up to a full suspension and at first was looking at 29ers. Now after riding a friends Remedy(Trek) I think I'm sold on an "all-mountain" setup. Have it somewhat norrowed to a Remedy 8--Stumpjumper Elite--RockyMountain Slayer 50--or a PIVOT firesomething(probably not because of$$$$). Keep in mind Im a "clydsdale" at 6.2 280, sooo what do ya think?

the slayer is a kick ass bike (i posted my opinions on it not long ago) and the remedy is also a pretty kick ass bike. you won't go wrong with either of them, so get the one that fits you best.
