So having had my Pitch stolen by some Crystal Meth addicts (no everyday junkies over here!) I'm now saving for a replacement in the spring.
I liked the Pitch as I was confident treating it like a bit of DH bike (Whistler, North Shore, Innerliethen etc) but could still climb respectably on it, I guess 'all mountain' is what I'm trying to say.
Obvious choice is an Enduro but they're a good bit pricier than the Reign or the Butcher ($2400 vs. $3000 odd). Butcher looks cool but is basically a single pivot, just wondering how that will react to my hamfisted braking into, through and out of the corner technique.
