Holy dead thread batman!
Burrows I am kind of in the opposite boat as you. I am currently riding a Rumblefish and I want to switch back to small wheels and more travel such as the Remedy. From what you have described the Rumblefish sounds like more of the bike for you. I ride pretty aggressively and it has taken all of my abuse, though I am 6' and only weigh about 145lbs geared up, if that. Now I must confess I did not get to ride the Remedy on any of my home trails but I think I got a pretty good feel for it. To me the Remedy felt light quick and nimble, like I could just through it around. Extremely playful bike, which is now what I'm looking for. This was a 12' 9.8 BTW. The bike as a whole just felt more responsive. In comparison, the Rumblefish felt almost sluggish. It didn't sprint as well but I have yet to ride anything that I felt climbs as well in the technical stuff as the Rumblefish. If I'm pointed upwards it's as if I can make it over anything with minimal effort. Once started down it is suupper stable, you just point and go. This isn't to say that you can't toss it around but it takes a bit more effort then the Remedy does. I honestly think the average person would be faster on the downhill with the Rumblefish because it will pretty much just plow over anything. Just be prepared to loose some of the nimbleness.
