    Getting back to it, new bike prospects

    Getting back into the discipline after a few years off, and I wanted to know your thoughts on the following bikes and why. I understand components can make a large difference, but I'm looking to possibly get back into enduro racing.

    YT Capra 27.5 Carbon

    Nukeproof Mega Factory Nukeproof Mega 275 Carbon Factory Bike 2018 | Chain Reaction Cycles

    Evil Insurgent GX build
    https://www.evo.com/mountain/evil-in...2017-black.jpg

    All are around the same in price but the component spec varies quite a bit. That being said, I've been told the Insurgent is a very poppy/playful bike which would be something I would heavily consider. Riding is typical east coast, rocky, rooty, hardpack. emphasis on the rocky.

    If you are open to looking at another bike, I suggest taking a peek at the Commencal Meta AM v4.2.

    Thatís a lot of rear travel for the east coast.
