first, thanks for this thread and all people giving advices and helping newbies out.
Here's my question, I would like to start, actually already did but my P.3(05) is not suitable, with some light FR, something in a spirit of Specialized Enduro Series (no huge drops) but I would also like to use that bike on roads when I travel to rides (I'm aware there will always be penalization for FS on roads). I'm 170cm, 70kg (5.6/154 lbs) and my budget is max $1,500 - $2,000, though prices are quite different where I live. So far I was looking at
http://www.lapierre-bikes.co.uk/mtb/.../x-control-110 ($1,500)($1,350 without wheels)
http://www.lapierre-bikes.co.uk/mtb/...low/x-flow-312 ($2,000 - without wheels, with them it's $2,300)(some people told me that x-flow is way too much overpriced)
or you can suggest frame + comps (without wheels, I would use my old ones), I'm used to build my own bikes.
So far my favorite is X-Control
All advices are appreciated.
