    Pedaling Freeride bike?

    Hey,
    I was looking for a 180mm freeride bike that can still pedal up trails and do 1 or 2 BMEs, I was looking at something like a Norco Truax or a Giant Faith. Does anyone have any recommendations for me?

    I use my canfield balance for stuff like that. Big mountain days and bike parks. 170/165

    Knolly Delirium. Depending on the shock it's either 170 or 185mm of rear travel, and 170-200mm up front (dual crown compatible).

    Has anyone tried a Giant Faith? Because I can get one with better components for cheaper than any of these bikes, but that might be for a reason. I'm looking to do a little more enduro than freeride, but I bought an enduro bike and it wasn't enough
