hi Josh, pretty similar as far as what the bike was designed for- both are 6" travel all-mountain bikes that are not hogs on the uphill (though not as fast as an xc bike). Personally I've always been partial to Rocky's- the geometry is really zippy and quick-handling, and they tend to fit people with shorter torsos very well. I also personally like sram a bit more than shimano, and I also like Fox suspension better than Rock Shox, so I would get the Slayer over the Remedy. But, both are super sick bikes that I'm sure you'll be happy on if you want a beefy, fun 6" travel bike.

I wear these pretty much every ski day, whether in the resort or backcountry, and they keep me very comfortable. They are very durable- I've had them going on 5 years! I love the 3/4 length as a short-legged girl, and while the waist is high, it rolls down nicely. The only negative thing I can say about these is that they do tend to loosen up a bit as you wear them. That might compromise a bit on warmth, but it makes them awfully comfy! Anyhow, I highly recommend these.

I've been rocking this top for nearly 5 years in every type of use imaginable- road biking, mtn. biking, camping/ hiking, resort skiing, backcountry skiing, fly fishing. I almost never wear synthetics anymore because this is so superior- it never stinks (whereas my synthetics get pretty gross after just an hour or two!). It's the perfect weight for pretty much any outdoor activity in the Northwest and in Jackson. For a bit more warmth, I like to layer this with a superfine 190 tank underneath.

This tent is a great tent for the money. It is on the smaller size, but at under four pounds, that is to be expected. I spent 18 days in mine on a bike tour with my boyfriend and we were very comfortable. We have also used the fly-only pitching feature to do some snow camping and it was fabulous in that situation also. It is a snap to set up (less than 5 minutes, easy), and very tough and durable given the light weight. Most of the reviews on here that are negative appear to be from people that didn't do enough research to know exactly what kind of tent they were ordering. However, if you are looking for a lightweight, 2-person, 3 season tent that is simple and durable, this tent is the trick. If you want more space and dont mind the extra weight, you might find another product that works better for you. Cheers!
