I want to get a force most likely 2008 and i was looking at the 3.0. I wanted to make sure that this is a good bike for jumping as well as tackling any terrain. I also looked at the Giant Trance X2 but i need something a little more jump worthy. Lastly, is it worth the extra money to get the Force 2.0 and the fox forks? Any info is appreciated.
If you want something more jump worthy, then look at the Sanction. I have an 07 Force 2.0 and luv it but I haven't done anything over 3 foot drops. I'm sure it can handle bigger drops but if you are gonna do more jumping and hucking then regular all mountain riding (like me), then get the sanction. It's built for what you want. My Force comes with full LX and it works very well. If you can afford to make the jump to the 2.0 then do it.
