    Hardtail for Enduro

    What would you recommend for hardtail class enduro races in the Mid-Atlantic? Iím pretty sure I want 27.5+ tires.

    I'm not familiar with the terrain but I doubt you'll want to use plus tires. I'd personally go for 29x2.5 and maybe CushCore. My local enduro course is Windrock and plus tires won't survive there. I haven't taken it to Windrock yet but I have a Guerrilla Gravity Pedalhead that will fit both 27.5+ and 29 (up to 2.6). It's pretty slack (~64.5* w/140mm fork). The chainstays are a bit short which is fun but a bit less stable than typical enduro geo.

    If you're considering plus, just get a Stache.

    Mine is faster than my actual "enduro" bike, depending on the trails.
