I'm looking at two hardtail mountain bikes, a Trek Roscoe 8 and a Co-Op DRT 2.2. I've ridden both and found each to be comfortable and each fit well. The Trek has a Sram1x12 Eagle NX 30x11-50 drivetrain and the Co-Op a Shimano 1x11 SLX 30x11-46 drivetrain. The other major difference are the shocks with the Trek using a RockShox Judy Silver and the Co-Op an X-Fusion McQueen RL2.

I'd appreciate your opinions regarding durability and general quality regarding the drivetrains and shocks.

I'll be doing primarily non-technical trail riding. No racing and no gnarly (Wow, this is the first time I've ever used the word gnarly) stunts. I really don't think that the 1.5" low gear inch difference is a concern.

Thank you for your help.
