    Specialized evo Stumpjumper fs or specialized Enduro

    Hello all, I have been looking at both of these bikes and want one in 26inch but would like to hear opinions on both. I like that the enduro has more travel for when I need it, but, also have seen that you can put a 150mm fork on the stump jumper as well and make it a really good descender similar to the enduor? I live in Costa Rica and there are tons of xc/single track and tech downhill trails everywhere so I was wondering which model might be best for some climbing as well. I could get the enduro and be done with it and have an all around mountain bike or shave some weight and go with the SJ, which model has the better geometry of descending and ascending? thanks all.

    either would be more than fine but it sounds like you would be better served by an evo.

    tech dh trails sounds fun. even more fun on an enduro. the new leverage climbs really well. i guess go with the one you think will get you the most grins! climbing-probably the evo, descending-definitely enduro if it truly is 15mm more squish and slacker angle steep tech you get to play on.

    don't know if an evo kit swap is available to 2013s but would be a nice plus on the enduro if you were to ride heavier mini-dh chunk anywhere.
