    bike & trail choice for moab trip.

    ok so here it is, at the end of this month we're riding moab. I have a yeti as-x w/ a totem, dhx 5 coil, 729 wheelset etc, its a burly machine but has a granny gear and i have a yeti dj w/ pike 454, saint everything and only has a single 32 tooth ring in front.
    we are wanting to do the classic moab rides (slickrock, porcupine etc) but i'm also wanting to his some more heavy descending trails. so my questions, what bike do you think i should bring and what trails have some long rad, tech and flowy downs.

    thanks guys, i'll be sure to take a ton of pictures etc of our riding adventures.. its going to be a big group of us riding... i'm pretty pumped given that i usually ride solo or with one other person.

    The ASX is your bike. You will be happy to have the 22t ring, and riding a hardtail DJ bike on the trails in Moab is just not that much fun.

    The only trail that won't be so hot on the ASX is Slickrock because of all the steep ups... the big bike sucks up your energy on those punchy climbs and the tall front end is hard to keep on the ground. The tradeoff is the equally steep and fast downs, and big bikes handle the sand really well.
