    Spec. Enduro Comp 29, Lapierre Zesty 527 or Spicy 527?

    I'm deciding between three bikes:
    - Specialized Enduro Comp 29,
    - Lapierre Spicy 527, or
    - Lapierre Zesty 527.

    I have never had or ridden a fully before (ok, just once, Nicolai Helius FR from a friend). Currently I ride hardtail Ghost 6000.

    I like descents more than climbs, but I have to somehow climb up to that hill from which I will be descending so going uphill is important too.

    Which one would you recommend for me as a beginner in fullies? I know that Lapierres are carbon, but I already did a research and they do not tend to broke even is you have an accident.

    BTW, are lapierres carbon worth an extra cash between aluminium (327 series) and carbon (527 series)?

    Thank you very much and regards, TomazO!

    I love my 29er enduro, works well. Up and down. 6" of travel, yup. Short chainstays, all good. Budget? Demo some to see what fits.

    Well I thew a dice and decided for Spicy (Zesty was no longer available). I think that it will be "one hell of a rocket". It's little heavier than Zesty, but Zesty was out of stock with no date of when it will be available.
    Thank you for your opinions.
    Cheers M8s, TomazO!

    Well, unfortunately I was not able to get one because the dealer was kinda fooling with me. I waited till the end of the summer and then just for fun tried full suspension e-bike from Scott...and got hooked. Nowadays I'm riding just e-bike, my hard-tail is mostly left in the corner of the garage. If you want any feedback on my e-bike, let me know.
