I'm trying to figure out which bike to buy, I want a strong bike that take rought stuff. and by that I mean go down long flights of stairs and also up and down curbs, and trails. I'm not gonna be attempting and 10' hucks or dirt jumping or anything of the sort. I want the bike I buy to have plenty of tire clearance so I could fit 2.35" or bigger tires. My buget is ~ $400. I've narrowed my choices down to the Trek Bruiser 1 and The GF Opie. But I'm kind of worried because I've read reviews that say the components on both are crap and I don't want my bike to fall apart the week I get it. Which should I buy? Are there other good options? HELP :confused:

I rode Opie and Mullet. Both are fun frames and components are as fine as any at same price point. FWIW: Staff at the Trek company store likes the Fishers more.
