    Southridge Winter Enduro - Which Bike?

    Hi All,

    I am going to race the beginner class tomorrow at Southridge and am trying to choose between my 2014 Intense Carbine 29 with 150mm/140mm or my 2016 Transition Smuggler with 130/115mm of travel. The Smuggler is surprisingly capable and I have a monarch plus in the back to help out a bit instead of the stock inline monarch. I prefer the Smuggler geo to the Carbine but don't want to feel totally undergunned in terms of travel. How technical is this course? I have watched videos on youtube but it is hard to tell. Any advice would be much appreciated.

    There are some decently technical bits but also some pedally bits. Why not bring both bikes and decide once you're there and have a look in person?
