    All Mountain Bike - Stumpy vs Jeffsy Vs Capra HELP!!

    I live in Missouri but travel often. I ride a lot in dupont, tsail North Carolina. Bentonville AR or out west. West includes Moab and Colorado. Will do resort/ lift riding if its available. Looking for a bike that I can use at home and on the road, about 50/50. I'm not much of a jumper but like to go fast and bomb downtrails.

    I am coming off a 2015 Enduro 27.5. The bike needs to pedal similar to my Enduro or better. Will be doing so long days on it.

    I am between New Stumpjumper 29 comp alloy, YT Jeffsy 27.5 AL Base(29 not available), or YT Capra 29 AL Base. I don't mind buying a bike online but am hesitate on a bike I've never ridden.

    I like the idea of the capra 29. Its enough bike for a bike park and with 29in wheels should hold speed on local trails. I've looked up a lot of info online but would like some options on which direction to go for a bike that can handle a little bit of anything.

    I am in MO as well. Not sure which trails you frequent but I have seen all 3 of these bikes on our trails. I think it would be more of an internal conflict with how much better you want downhill capability to be than pedal-ability. If you are traveling often enough and/or live south (closer to AR and 2 rivers) then I would think the Capra would be the most capable and rewarding out of the bunch. I have not ridden either YT but I have a bud that just bought the SJ. I liked it a lot. I have only had it in a parking lot but felt really plush.
