    The Specialized, Ibis, Santa Cruz all have strong heritage as to what it is they're made of. The Yeti puts an adaption to their solid lineup, the Kona is all new, the Knolly seems to gain more fans each day.

    So long as the frame fits, each seem it make a fine choice.

    If the enduro is to piggish for you the stumpy evo expert is a dream bro. Put a 160mm x34mm fork up front and its an enduro type riding machine!Best frame for ripping and enduro with technical climbs and descents-imageuploadedbytapatalk-hd1368295294.750123.jpg

    There is an Enduro section if you are looking to get into racing. It would really depend on the trails/races you are doing. Some will be more XC biased and some will be more DH biased. The bikes mentioned are mostly leaning towards the DH bias.

    I personally would be looking at a TRc with fox 36 or lyrik for XC biased Enduro. A nomadc for dh oriented enduro. And a Bronson would be smack in the middle of the two.

    Canfield The One, Knolly chilicotin or Knolly endo have all gained popularity by the day as Haint mentioned but none of these come in a lighter weight carbon fiber option.

    If you're racing, go with as little travel as you can handle. I swapped a 6" Reign for a 5" ASR-5, got faster up and down, and got to keep my Minion DHF 2.5 front tire. Keep in mind, I ride mostly hardpack with some jumps, drops, and occasional rocks. (Fruita, Moab, Salt Lake).
