    Help me thin my herd

    Hello I am moving to southern UT (kanab) in a couple of months and have to unload some bikes. Here is my list:

    yeti asr5
    canfield nimble 9 (SS)
    Transition bottle rocket
    9 zero 7 fat bike.

    Which 2 should I keep, which 2 should I unload?

    A long travel trail/XC bike and a fat bike are usually all you need, unless you are into the gravity stuff.

    I figure that gooseberry and hurracane will be the trails I ride most. I do not see much local.

    I am not opposed to moderate gravity stuff. I used the bottle rocket as an xc bike for 2 year in rocky tech PA trails and did not mind it. But that was before I rode the yeti. that is just too easy to pedal. It eats up everything, which I think is it's downfall. I like the challenge. So, how tech ate UT trails? I hear everything in the west is bigger.

    For summer riding you will also be close to the AZ Trail and Rainbow Rim up on the Kaibab. Also, not too far up 89 is Casto, Cassidy, Losee and Thunder Mountain. And up 89 then 14 is Navajo Lake and the VRRT.

    There are no real single track trails that I know of in the immediate Kanab area, but within 60 to 90 minutes, you have an amazing selection. You will just have to decide how and what you want to ride.

    A lot of the trails here in So Utah are quite technical, so a long travel/xc bike might be a good idea. That said, I enjoy my hard tail Niner most these days. I don't miss my stumpjumper too much. Tough decision.

    There's a lot of very cool places to explore near Kanab, and all fairly sandy; fat bike country! A good trail bike, yeti or trans, and your 907 should be perfect for 99 percent of our terrain.
    I like bikes.

    Used to live in Kanab. There a few trails just on the edge of town, but they are better for hiking (Squaw Trail). There are thousands of miles of four wheeling and fire roads throughout Kane County and the Arizona Strip and the Kaibab Plateau. Had fat bikes been a big thing when I was there, I would have totally bought one when I lived there. The roads are sandy but great adventuring to be done.

    You'll get a bit of snow in the winter and especially up on the plateau which would make for great fat biking too.
