    Modern equivalent of early 2000s GT XCR?

    What would be the modern equivalent of the early 2000s XCR line? To be honest, I'm a little overwhelmed by GT's classifying MTBs into 6 categories. It's not just DH and XC anymore?

    Considering jumping into the FS world and remember my friend's XCR being great back in the day.

    I'm definitely not a downhill bomber, like to climb more than go down, but that's not to say I don't want the benefits of full suspension and don't like to have some fun going fast.

    You could always try tracking down an old XCR... not to say the Helion is bad in any way, but could be a cheaper option to see how you like FS
