    Wreckoning as a Enduro race bike?

    Going to start racing Enduro this year (UK) and currently own a Wreckoning.

    The length and amount of climbing involved in each race weekend is starting to worry me with this bike.

    Do people use it as an enduro bike without worries?

    Starting to think I maybe should have something 130/140mm ish.

    Thanks
    Neil

    Ride what you have. If after a year you 1) decide you are going to race enduro a lot and 2) you would prefer a different bike it will be a more sensible decision and you are more likely to spend the $$ on what you actually need vs. what you think you might need. The Wreck may prove to be just the ticket and save you a lot of $$.
    Safe riding,

    The year the Wreckoning debuted Evil sponsored an Italian racer in the EWS who did pretty well on it.
