    Cool-blue Rhythm riding Sedona for the first time. Mach 6 or Mach 4?

    Okay so I will be heading to Sedona next week and wondering which bike will bring me the most enjoyment? I own both a Mach 6 and Mach 4 but can only ship one. My skills range from XC 3 day stage races with 8,000ft climbing like TSE and Mohican 100 to riding DH at Snowshoe and 7springs. I guess its a good problem to have but I am looking forward to your advice. Thanks!

    If your that strong bring the Mach 6. You won't zip around as fast but it will bring the most enjoyment and also be more forgiving/stable if you like to ride anything steep and technical. If XC is your jamb and you won't try anything spicy anyway like lots of folks that are over-biked then then Mach4. Mach 4 is plenty capable but if it were me I'd want more travel.

    We just spent a 4 day weekend out there. One of my friends was on a 2016 or 17 429. After riding out there, heís now bike shopping. At 240 lbs of muscle, I think he needs a bike with a Fox 36 for sure.

    The only time I ride my 429 is when my Switchblade is in the shop. Mach 6. And itís hard to be over tired, especially on the front.
