    Trail bike

    Hi Iam after a bit of advice guys , Iam looking for a new bike , cumming from a Ellsworth epiphany Iam looking at pivot 429 trail , ibis ripley v4
    yeti sb130, ripmo , the epiphany made me feel like a better rider than I am , climbed well descended well , but itís time for a 29 er Iam not the most confident decender ,like climbing I keep looking at the yeti , I donít want it to feel like a big heavy bike so wondering how agile it would be built up xx1 / xtr very high end spec ???? Any ideas please
    by the way Iam 6ft tall and 210 lbs

    No idea what you're asking here. High-end spec doesn't change the agility of a bike; geometry does.

    Most of the bikes you listed are relatively similar in scope and most will weight in the high 20s/sub-30. Go demo some bikes and buy the one you like.
    Just like a raindrop, I was born to fall.
