Which DH bike rental option would you go with and why? I'm 5'11, 165lbs, and an advanced rider who can handle most everything on the mountain. I won't have an opportunity to test any of these bikes before I get there in late August. Your feedback is appreciated as to which bike/shop to go with. I'm not concerned about the price, just the bikes/shop.

-Specialized Demo 8 v1 (Evolution)
-Norco Aurum (Fanatyk)
-Giant Glory (Whistler Bike)
-RMC Flatline World Cup (Summit)

Demo, and Evolution has some of the better customer service and most pristine bikes of the Whistler shops, in my opinion. The shop experience (condition of the bike is part of this) is 10x more important than the brand/model of bike.

Thanks guys, it sounds like it's between Evolution and Fanatyk. Maybe I'll try a Demo for half my trip and the Aurum for the 2nd half.
