    another help me pick a bike thread

    ok so i have finally bit the bullet and decided on purchasing a squishy bike. i have narrowed it down to the style of bike i want. right now i am just looking for some options that i have not considered. i am looking for something between 5 and 6 inches of rear travel, basically an aggressive XC or AM rig.

    the 4 bikes that i have looked at so far are

    Transition Covert
    Banshee Rune
    (both of these i am unable to demo in my area so anyone that owns one or has ridden one please tell me what you think of them)

    Santa Cruz Heckler
    Specialized Enduro
    (i am little skeptical about the future shock...again if anyone has any experience with the specialized future shock i would greatly appreciate the input)

    if there are any other bikes that i missed that fit this genre dont hesitate to let me know so that i may check them out.

    Why don't you go back over your post and edit things so it all makes sense and reads comprehensively?

    My compliments, you've done a decent editing job, it's pretty readable now. May even pass muster with Ed.

    I don't know where you ride or how you ride, but I'd go with the Rune. I have not heard a bad ride report from a Rune owner yet.

    Also, if you're looking at the Enduro but don't like the idea of Future Shock, have a gander at the Pitch.

    Should probably throw a Yeti 575 in the mix.
