I'm getting rid of my Kona Coilair Supreme (too bouncy) and my Spesh Epic (head angle too steep) so I'm after some suggestions. I mostly ride the Welsh and Scottish trail centres, but I'm doing an enduro for a laugh. I'm thinking a hardtail and at max a 5" travel susser. Budget is about £5k.
How does carbon cope with the UK trail centres with the loose stones and trees.
