What i think (no pros and cons, just observations):
specialized enduro - pricier, FSR, geometry places seat/rider weight further forward than some others

giant vt - price makes it good value, pretty neutral on geometry, light front end, manitou components

trek liquid - pricier, no idea geometry or shock, bontrager components

kona dawg - entry point price ranges available, price makes good value, geo a little further back

SC Heckler. The beauty is in its simplicity. Truly a do everything, go anywhere bike. I'm 265 and can't break it. It climbs better than my hard tail while having 5" up front and 6"+ in the back.

Make me a serious offer and this could be yours, shipping and insurance are extra.



Specs:
VT2 frame (16.5)
Manitou Minute 3
Mavic XMax UST or RhinoLite XL/XT hubs with WTB Mutanos 2.4
Shimano XT cranks, shifters, hydros w 8" front/7" rear rotors
SRAM PC69 chain
Shimano XTR mechs, housing and cables
Thomson posts (30.9 setback, 90mm X4)
Bontrager Big Earl OS bar
ODI lock-ons
Selle Italia ProLink Gelflow saddle
Crank Bros Candys
Hutchinson Spider 2.1 UST

Why I may sell this bike? It's not been used since started SSpeeding and road biking.

Holy crap man keep it to one thread. Seriously its a decent bike. Good ole single pivot with traditional pivot placement. The frame is as solid as they come. The bike itself is amongst the best low travel fr frame available, if anything it is too expensive but beyond that, good bike.
