    '05 Slayer 50 versus '05 Enduro Comp?

    I can get both of these bikes for essentially the same price. Anyone have advice on choosing one versus the other? I plan to use this for technical XC riding where there will be a combination of long technical climbs and technical descents. I'd like to be able to do moderate drops (3-4 footers). I guess I'm looking the the most versatile "all mountain" bike. If anyone has any major strikes against one (or both) of these choices, I'd like to hear about it. Thanks!

    I have the 05 enduro comp and i love it. Never had any problems with it and it can handle pretty much anything. Yet with its beefeyness i have no problems climbing.

    oh, i missed the "'05 Slayer" part.
    the new '06 Slayer looks really good, but the '05 Slayer is a little outdated (i had a 2004 Slayer 70 before it got stolen).

    generally just because of the RockyMountain label, a simlilarly set-up Slayer will cost more than an Enduro and i think the Enduro is a slightly better suspension design...
    my only real gripe with the Enduro is that you can't sink the saddle much without a double seat-post... (if you're gonna do lots of downhill consider buying a double-seatpost form the get-go -- not sure, but i think the new BigHits come standard this way now, but i don't think so for Enduro although the post should be easy to get)

    for '05 model i'd get the Enduro.
    for '06 the new Slayer looks quite nice, but i haven't seen anything but photos yet and it's probably not available for a while ??
    why drive when you can ride?
