Looking to get a new bike and don't want to spend a lot of $$$, so I am considering alloy bikes. I know these 2 bikes are both great values, I am just wondering (having never ridden either bike) is the DW suspension THAT good that it over shadows all the techy coolness of the stumpy evo (geo adjust, SWAT)? I assume the Ripmo AF is a better climber but the evo may edge out in the descents. I am a beginner+/intermediate rider in Las Vegas, NV where the trails can be pretty rough. Looking experienced based opinions. Thanks!
