    Best bike for Brian Head, Dark Hollow, Bunker Creek etc

    Heading to Brian Head for a few days, planning on shuttling Dark Hollow, Bunker Creek and Blowhard Mountain.
    Basically I have;

    Sette Derro, XC 4" travel
    Giant Reign X1, All mountain 6.5" travel
    Scott Voltage, Freeride 7" travel, pedals like a pig

    I'm gonna ride one and the wife the other, I expect to go faster than her, which bike should I ride and which should I pawn off on the wife?

    I'd say it depends on how much you hate pedaling on the Voltage. The top of Cedar mountain is really rocky so I would say take the two bigger bikes as there isn't much pedaling on any of those trails. Most people I know do ride up there on xc or hardtails so it isn't that bad, but I wouldn't want to.

    I hate pedalling the Scott, but I'd rather pedal it than choose between go slow or having my teeth rattled out! Besides being slow on the pedally stuff will let my wife get out in front a bit so I can smoke the fast stuff.

    Thanks for the knowledge

    Dark Hollow and Bunker have sections of highly technical and rocky riding, and Brian Head's lift accessed runs are extremely rocky/technical......you'd be fine on the Reign, or Voltage.
    I like bikes.
