I'm looking to get my first FS bike and have ~$2k to spend. I'm 6'1" and 220 lbs. I do a couple Xterra's each year but I'm not really looking to go fast, just be able to climb and ride down anything that looks fun. I ride a lot of singletrack, roots, babyheads, creekbeds & drops up to 3'.
I was looking at the SC Heckler or the Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Comp or Enduro. The LBS guy keeps telling me the Specialized Epic Disc is the ultimate bike in my price range. I am worried that it might not hold up. Isn't it more of a race bike?
Any experience or suggestions would be great. Thanks.
