- Recommend me the best Enduro bike?
If there are climbing timed sections, something that you can climb on as you’ll gain far more time than you’ll lose on the descent.
The whole point of Enduro racing is that you get timed ONLY on the descent.. however there is a time limit in the transition stage to get to the start of the next descent…generally you can ride this at a steady pace so your bike needs to be light enough to pedal but set up for the descending.
I ride a np mega for guiding, racing etc.. and the long wheeelbase and slack angles means its a mini DH bike…the steep seat tube though pushes your weight forward for efficient climbing…. The perfect enduro bike and the pro model is amazing VFM and there is NOTHING you need to change.Posted 5 years agomatt1986Member
I’m getting a norco range 2013 with is 650b to race a couple of gravity enduros next year. Anything with 150-160 travel should be ok. The only way to find what you like is to ride a few no 2 people are shaped the same and no 2 people ride the same so what someone else like you might not.Posted 5 years ago
Surely there’s a few enduro & dh wins from the DoH – they’ll all on orange 5/patriots……. I think
I think thats mainly talent 🙂 not that many wins i think though, a quick scan through some GE’s from 2012 shows Ibis (CCA) Cannondale (Clemantz) and a few others. However CCA was on a Lapiere the year before and still beating nearly everyone.Posted 5 years ago
