    Another what bike thread

    Little about me. Eastern PA trails, short steep up and downs. I'm 6'1 200lbs, been riding a Niner EMD large since purchasing in 2016.

    Bike 1) 2019 Jet 9 RDO that's basically a 4-5 star build for 3500. Has a few miles, but basically new.

    Bike 2) Guerrilla Gravity Pedalhead or one of there suspension bikes.

    Cash budget if 5k or less

    You need to narrow down what you're looking for in a bike before looking at specific models. One of those bikes is a conservative geo full suspension XC/trail bike and the other a slack agressive hardtail.

    Great point! I'm looking for a bike I can spend 2-3 hours enjoying a variety of terrain. I plan on using the EMD as a SS, I like how it rides for me.

    I would go HT about 130mm either 29x2.6 or 27.5+ but that is just me. Try some see what attracts you.

    Have you demod any bikes? That's the first thing I'd do, because it sounds like you have a lot of options, and a desire that's specific to you rather than to any particular bike. For what you're talking about, I like a FS bike with nice playful numbers, but not so much suspension that it gets old on climbs. I demod several bikes that fit the bill, but ultimately settled on one for a lot of reasons. Thus I'll make a recommendation - look at trail bikes sporting 100-130mm of travel. Efficient enough to spend hours on, many fun enough to convince you they have more travel than advertised.
