    Need help filling my quiver in

    This is the opposite of the "Need help thinning out the quiver" post. After thinning out my quiver a bit, I need help figuring what direction I want to go with my next bike. I figure i can go in a xc direction or a more enduro direction.

    I have a Scott Spark 900RC that i use for XC racing. I pretty much ride it the week leading up to races and for races that are under 2 hours. I race cat2 not to podium but to get out there ride all out for anfew hours. The Spark is a great race bike but has its limitations. Ive thought about getting into racing longer events 3-4hrs or maybe stage races. I may start feeling tired on the Spark after a couple hours so maybe something like a Sniper Trail, Blur, SB100 would be good. But then again maybe i just put a Fox34SC on the Spark?

    My everyday bike is a Spot Mayhem 29. Its my do everything well bike right now. It handles everything well. Its the best all around bike ive had in a while.

    I also have an Insurgent, but while that is a 27.5 bike, its super fun on more gnarly trails. This leads me to consider a fun long travel 29er. Top on the list are Orbea Rallon, Evil Wreckoning, Devinci Spartan 29. Those bikes will be heavy but i tend to ride by myself so im only racing against my own times. If i really want to race against others ill ride my race bike.

    So what direction would you go?

    I am a bit in a similar situation but i do not race.
    I realy love my XC 29 100mm 22 pounds hardtail.
    Since i am not strong and 140 pounds i have eliminated many options(many bikes are jut too heavy to be fun for me).
    I need to do a real test on a fullsuspension XC about 25 pounds.
    If i do not like it i will have 2 options.
    Extend my Rockshocx SID to 120mm and probably get a 100 mm to have options unless it becomes my dream bike.
    Ride 2 similar bikes but on different tires.
    I just love the versatility of a 29.
    I do not have a car so 1 bike is not an option for me.
