Light FS, great climber, don't like the slackness of the Enduro...sounds like you need an XC bike. I ride a Yeti AS-R, and that thing climbs like a mountain goat. Other bikes to look at would be the Intense Spider, Titus Racer-X, Norco Faze, SC Superlight, Foes Prolite, Specialized Epic, RM Element, Fisher (Super/Pro)Caliber, Pivot Mach4, Trek Top Fuel, C'dale Scalpel, etc. Or an Ibis Mojo, since it's just as light as the shorter travel bikes anyway. The list goes on and on...most companies will make a short travel, lightweight XC bike. Shop around and see what fits you, what rides the best, and what you can afford.
