    24HoA = New Bike Time?

    Hi Guys/Gals, I raced the 24HoA this year in Canmore, Alberta and had such a blast and was so freaken impressed with the Solo riders that I entered the ride again next year as a Solo contestant.

    My question to cyerland is this: I currently ride a 2007 Stumpy FSP Comp with Specialized 1.85 tires (forget the name atm). I felt it its job for most of the event, however I am looking to save up for another bike come next spring so that I have two in the stable for the event.

    Ok now to the question: What XC bike out there now do you think is a great choice for a 24hour event like the one in Canmore?

    I have a couple in mind by Santa Cruz but I'd like to see if there are any other possible suggestions.

    Couple of notes: my downhill Technical skills are not the best, I ride mainly road.

    Cheers

    The Canmore course is pretty tame so you could get away with a hardtail or a minimal travel FS. But you're going to go solo so you must be nuts. A FS would make it a lot more enjoyable...like a Blur XC, Athem, Epic, or any of the lighter, short travel XC bikes. A lot of the solo guys were on 29ers.

    I've found that the trek fuel ex series is really good for endurance riding- super comfortable.

    Thanks, I was thinking of the Blur xc, I might look into the trek fuel as well. I just feel I need somehting a little more nimble then the stumpy
