    Spearfish3 as an all around MB

    I have a spearfish 3 on layaway because of an awesome price. I can take it off and put the $ to another bike. But what's y'all's view on this bike being an all around MB. I do trails small jumps, small drops nothing crazy big. Iv been riding a Rockhopper. I live in KY and still stay around here and ride might go out west one day.

    It will be a fine bike. Just because it's labeled XC doesn't mean you can't ride it aggressively. You can beef up the tire size if you want a little more security. But if you're looking for some more durability you may want to switch to the Horsethief as mentioned, or look at some of the 5" "Trail" bikes that are out there.

    Thanks for the replays. I ended up going with a stump jumper.
