I'm researching AM bikes and am loving the look of the new Enduro. Seems like a solid bike and a decent choice for a regular size rider.
What about for a larger rider? Anyone out there sporting the new SL that also happens to sport extra weight? I'm 6'2, 280, so the lack of a coilover shock has me a bit concerened. I ride NW technical stuff (Oregon and Washington, so rocky/rooty stuff with some central Oregon hardpack thrown in), but I'm also looking forward to start taking ladder drops to trannnys (light, light FR).
Any thoughts? I asked my LBS about it and they kept steering me to larger, sturdier bikes (Giant Reign X1, for example). But that felt a little more FR-style than I'm looking forward to.
So...can the Enduro handle it?
