Currently on a 2018 specialized enduro. Looking to pick up another bike that has a better pedaling platform but can still hold its own going downhill. Would like to hear all of your opinions!

Stumpjumper, SB130, Ibis, Evil? so many to choose from its overwhelming.

My specialized enduro just feels like too much. Thanks in advance!

Canfield Balance or Revel Rail. Hands down the best climbing suspension design out there, and you sacrifice nothing on downhills. All the hype is real.

When I first had my Balance I kept freaking out because I thought I had over-inflated my shock or left the climb switch on. Nope, it’s just that efficient. It doesn’t lose power if the suspension compresses while mounting an obstacle. You never feel like you hit a wall where you push harder but it won’t go faster. Just remarkable dark-magic power transfer all the time.

Rocky Mountain comes in close second with their frame tuning on the Altitude or Instinct BC.
