Trying to figure out what (type of) bike to take on the Durango to Moab hut trip this summer. Interested in opinion or what others took and pros/cons. In the stable I have a couple single speed steel hardtails(including a redline flight that could be built geared), a Spec FSR Stumpjumper Expert, and a Yeti Arc.
In my mind the best bike for this kind of ride is a monster cross, which I don't currently have (I need very little encouragement to pull the trigger and build one). The stumpjumper would be plush, but lots of moving parts. The yeti is a race hard tail and it would beat me to death. Of the bikes I currently own, only the redline seems reasonable (built geared with a 100m fork that can be locked out if needed).
