    XC Bike Recommendations for ~$3k / Salsa / Yeti

    I need advice!

    I'm replacing a 13 year old Trek 4900 hardtail and am considering either the Salsa Horsethief II or Yeti SB95 Enduro.

    I ride trails in and around Houston, TX, Flat Rock Ranch in the Texas Hill Country, The Piney Woods of East Texas, have ventured up to Whistler, BC and plan to visit New Mexico & Colorado.

    I need a solid, versatile all rounder that will last (although my plan is for less than 13 years this time!).

    Suggestions please!

    Cheers

    If you are open to more options there are the 140mm Trek Remedy and the 130mm Rocky Mountain Instinct.
    The Yeti is a good choice, but you can get the Rocky and Trek for less money because they don't have a Yeti badge.
    But all the bikes mentioned are great. You can't go wrong with any.

    So many great bikes out there that does everything well , The SB95 being one of them.

    The Horsethief gets rave reviews as does the Specialized Enduro. Your on the right track though for the diversity of terrain your planning on riding.
