Hello all.....I am new to the site and fairly new to Mountain biking. Last season was my first one and i love it!!!!! I currently have a Yeti AS-R SL with Fox F100 RLT (100mm) on the front and a Fox Float RP3 on the back. In the year that i have been riding i have progressed rapidly and have outgrown my bike. I ride a little to aggressive downhill for only 100m of travel and i feel as though i am going to break my bike:) I have been looking at the Yeti 575 and also the new Yeti AS-R 7 which seems to be a 575 with 7in of travel. I have test rode both of them and they are great bikes. the 575 seems to climb a little better but the difference is negligible. I am also looking into just upgrading my frame with new components to make it a more aggressive bike but am not sure if that is just putting a band aid on the larger problem of needing a beefier frame. I am 6'0 250 and want to get the bike that will best serve me for the next 5 yearrs or so. any help would be appreciated

Yes XC bikes are meant to bee more lightweight, not extreme durability for the rough stuff. if your not worried about weight, consider a beefy bike for rougher trails
i dont have money for a new bike...the bike is ok...its just the fork that needs chainging...
