Thanks. Would you say that a Stumpjumer FSR falls into the same category as dawg and coiler series? I guess I could spend a max of 2k, but I'd much rather spend around 1-1.5k.
it is more similar to a dog than a coiler. The coiler will be much stronger and have more travel, but the specialized will be easier to climb and peddle. It sounds like the fsr is a little more xc oriented than what you want, the enduro would be better, but also more exspensive. look at the giant reign 3, it has longer (6 rear, 5+ front) travel, great components and the maestro suspension (easy peddling etc..) all for about 1600. here is the linkhttp://www.giant-bicycle.com/us/030....sp?model=11149
