- which bike best for enduro races, longish rides and fun factor
superlight all the way, ive ridden loads of different biikes in the last 20 years, treks, schwinns, konas, specialized stumpys, enduros the lot, and the SC is the one bike that genuinely does it all, you really dont need much more than 100mm travel anyway unless youre hammering the alps, in which case you will be wanting a bullit………..Posted 8 years agosharkiMember
My opinion is to try them all as bikes feel different to many riders, what’s great for maybe uninspiring for another.
From experience, the orange 5 was great fun…..performed flawlessly in both wet MM whilst providing fun and comfort needed for a long time in the saddle..
I did many all day rides.
And it’s Fun, a heck of a lot of fun if you wind the beast up for it.
Mine wasn’t to light either..
However, i’ve done all day rides, had alot of fun and done enduros on a SC chameleon and thought that was fun too..
Perhaps i just like riding..Posted 8 years agoshortcutSubscriber
I have to agree that the SC Superlight is far from light. It is however very good for what you are after. I got one a little before Christmas and have been running it 3 or 4 times a week through rain, sleet, snow and sun (lovely sun) and it has hardly put a foot wrong.
Got off it after 45 odd miles on the surrey hills yesterday (taking in all the climbs i could find) and I was wanting to go out again today.
It does most things really well and is enjoyable to ride.Posted 8 years agonukeSubscriber
Superlight may not be super light (although OP didn’t specify whether lightweight was a requirement) but it is a very versatile bike particularily twinned with 100 – 130 travel adjust forks like last years Revs. Personally though I found the BB height a bit low for rocky/rooter bits.Posted 8 years ago
