    Input? Take look leave an input

    I知 still pretty new riding only been riding mild TX trail, but looking forward to this winter to start driving to better runs. Spider mountain opening up soon I知 only hour away!! Thinking about hitting more runs in that style in my future.

    I own a Salsa Mariachi ridge 29覇r 3.0 in the front and 2.4 1X10 my favorite XC bike ready to take on any mild trail. I end horse trading into a Salsa Beargrease 2 bone stock. Looking to possibly trade the fat bike for capable all in one enduro bike that hang out on most trails.

    I came across this Marin Rocky ridge 7.4 locally in the area after spend a couple day I can really find anything other than article reviews online not much in the way of personal experience from owners.

    I知 not entering any races in the near future so I知 been looking more at hardtail bike thinking about less upkeep if maintenance. Since I知 in central Texas I have no need for a full DH or enduro rig just to have sitting in garage just for a few rides a year.


    Thanks for looking open to hear your guys thoughts and opinions.

    Look for something with a fox 34 factory, pike, or mattoc pro. Those are the forks you want on a AM hardtail. If I was looking for a used bike I would try to find a good deal on a ros 9.

    Something about a bike, I think. I tried to watch the video but I got super annoyed trying to listen to whatever the hell the guy was saying.
