OK - - the Element Team is a full-on XC racing rig. It is not a trailbike. That would be more in the realm of a Slayer.

Don't limit your travel choices so much just because 5" seems "outlandish" to you. There are 6" machines out there now that peddle so much more efficiently than the 3-4s of old. Aim for something that can give you the full range of enjoyment.

Not to beat a dead horse but the Yeti 575 can be spec'd in your price range, under 30 lbs. and was designed in Colorado for your type of riding. It's the whole package.
