Perhaps too big a question to ask, but...
Haven't ridden in a couple of years and just getting back to it. Currently on a 2005 (?) Enduro. I now have step kids who are starting to ride, and I'm now older and slower (early 50s). Also a Clydesdale. I can drop 20 lbs and get in shape, but will still be a Clyde. (Edit: ok, maybe not. I'm about 210 and will get down to 190. Was just reading that other Clydes are 300+.)
Going to ride mostly fire lanes, but will do some trails as well. Fire lanes can get somewhat steep, will be heavily rutted at times, and I may want to do 1-2 miles of pavement to get there.
My main concern is climbing and keeping up with the kids. No big jumps, no boulders, nothing else too crazy. Good climbing and good enough to keep up with kids as they start building skills.
Rode yesterday and was surprised how much I like the Enduro. Good all -around bike. Not a great climber. Probably going used, but might do new depending what I can get for my bike.
