    Which bike to rent in Moab?
    I will be doing the Porcupine rim hopefully starting from Hazards County, Slickrock, Amasa Back and perhaps Portal trail.

    I am considering a Yeti 95 or a Yeti SB 66 from Poison spider bicycles

    Which bike would be most fun for these kind of trails?

    Ummm, when? It's like 20 degrees or less in Moab right now. Just thought I'd throw that out there.

    Either bike would be fine.

    Around the 6th of May - hopefully it will be warmer by then ;-)

    Yeah, it should be about perfect then.

    Pretty sure Chili Pepper rents Transition's TR 250....can't think of a more fun way to ride anything on the Whole Enchilada!

    I'd go with a Yeti SB-66 or a Santa Cruz Nomad. Both would be ideal on TWE.

    Amasa Back is one of my favorite rides anywhere... have fun.

    Whatever you like to ride! Consider just a little more travel if you like that kinda thing. It's fun and why not ? :)

    Take this opportunity to rent a few different bikes, IMO.
    Unless you just have a 'magical connection' with one of them (guitar players will identify with this!)
    In that case, keep that one all week....
    Poison will have the Rocky Altitudes in their demo, try an excellent 650b....

    Here in Denmark I normally ride either my Intense Spider 29 and when I go the Alps I bring my Tracer 2. I have always been a Yeti fanboy and have had two Yeti 575s and the new SB 95 seem quite nice. Two years ago I rode TWE, Slickrock and Amasa back on poisons Pivot Firebird. It was good for TWE but a bit heavy for Slickrock and Amasa back.

    Hmmm all the difficult choices I have to make ;-)

    I like a nice solid 6" bike on all of those trails except Slickrock. My Enduro loves Porcupine!

    Slickrock, not so much ... my solution is not to ride that trail anymore ... solves everything.

    Try an Ibis Mojo HD from Uranium Bicycle shop. IMHO the perfect bike for Moab.:thumbsup:
