    looking to buy an All Mnt bike, need help...

    Hi,

    I currently ride a Santa Cruz Super light with 120mm travel. I recently rode my brothers Trek carbon remedy that has 150mm 0r 160mm travel and it was amazing. So amazing that it's inspired me to upgrade to a bike with more travel. I'd also like to go carbon, as I prefer lighter bikes.

    I'm 5'11 around 175 pounds and live in S. california. I'm not a super aggressive rider but felt so much more solid on the down hills when riding the trek. I really like the way my superlight handles but I feel limited on downhills with it.

    Can anyone recommend All Mnt style bikes from other bike companies (as i'd rather not have the same bike as my brother) that might suit me?

    cheers

    NS soda.

    Knolly Chilcotin .

    Banshee rune

    Or if You can find it The Orange patriot...fuken sic single pivot



    But if you have to have carbon(lame) Get an Ibis

    Mojo HD | Bikes | Ibis Cycles US

    My choice would be the NS soda cause it looks cool

    whats your budget?
    so you are more xc type rider, I suggest get Ibis mojo SL. the HD may be too much bike for you. Demo some.

    I suppose i'm a trail rider. My bike is an xc bike but I really want to go bigger. i'd love to go carbon but they are considerably more expensive. if if i could find a good deal i'd go for it. My budget is around 3-4k but I' d part with more if worth it.

    i was looking at the specialized enduro comp. it seemed to have gotten good reviews. anyone have experience with this bike?
