Hey, I recently got my bike stolen and was looking to upgrade either way but now this made it much more urgent than before. I recently just bought a tear drop camper and added a bike rack, I currently live in Colorado with plans to road trip it out to Pacific Northwest and stopping in Moab along the way and anything else I can find from here to there. I like the more gravity fed stuff with some flow jump lines and berms, I enjoy technical root and rock sections to a certain level and will defiantly be doing a good amount of lift access type of riding like Crested butte, and Whistler but I don't mind to pedal to get to some good stuff. I am trying to get a perfect bike set up for doing these trips and wouldn't mind the idea of having two bike if thats what is needed to fully enjoy my travels. I am no professional rider by any standard and won't be going off any extreme features so the need for a full on downhill bike doesn't seem as necessary for your average rider that still likes to charge hard. With that being said I am thinking something that has 170/170 travel with a coil rear shock might be able to peddle good enough while being able to handle the abuse of the bike park better, that could save me from buying two bikes right out of the gate and I would defiantly like to save the money if its not fully needed for someone with my skills but like said if the best answer in your guys experience would be to have a full downhill bike for downhill lift access riding then ill just bit the bull and get what is needed. If you guys have any suggestion of bikes im open to them! Thank you for the help!
