please show me your best ever do it all bike
what bike have you owned that best fits the do it all category.
Im selling my hardtail and putting some money towards and cant decide between a do it all full sus or a full on dh bike.
please show me your do it all bikes and help me make my mind up.
I know i dont really need a dh bike most the time but i would rather have a bike that is capable of everything i do.
im confused and really want to get my next bike right as i have now had two in a row that i dont like 🙁Posted 5 years ago

Salsa Horsethief, only ridden it once but I love it already. 130mm fork, 120mm rear travel 29er/steamroller/monster truck. Chuffing brilliant. You’ll struggle to get the right bike if you don’t test ride some, having said that I’d never ridden a Horsethief before I got mine.
the enduro is like a smooth pitch. mmm.
how does that horsething work with such itty bitty seatstays? you’d think they’d bend under compression. anyway only heard good things about it.
i’d of course vote for the only AM bike i’ve owned, the 26″ Guapo.. also happens to be one of the cheapest AM frames if you’re into self-build. no pics yet only built it 2 days ago but looks very much like my last one:

There is NO do-it-all bike….
There, I’ve said it… Any bike you use will be good in some areas and compromised in others. Depending on your riding you must choose where you are willing to compromise most.
I’ve got a Nukeproof Mega. It’s great for uplift days and the Alps etc, bit too much for your average xc ride or trail centre and I wouldn’t go near a pumptrack with it!
For that reason I also have a hardtail and a bmx…. 😀
Forget the do-it-all notion, it is all about compromise…Posted 5 years ago
