I'm contemplating a new ride and looking for feedback on the above bikes. I'm currently riding a Stumpy FSR with BETD link and Pushed Float R, and a Giant VT2. Thinking of keeping the Giant and replacing the FSR. Mostly New England technical singletrack, one yearly endurance race. I'll probably be keeping the build on the low-moderate side-looking to spend 2.5-3k tops-any suggestions for where to buy also appreciated. Thanks in advance.

You need to look at the 5 spot. I went from a stumpy FSR to the spot. Much better execution of design.

I have just gone from an Ellsworth Id to a MotoLite, very much worth a look, the handling is fantastic in tight tech single track, has amazed me..... Great stiff back end... As S Works mentions, the Spt handles great, I think though in my opinion the MotoLite is stffer in the rare.... Would be great for the odd race as you mention, can stand up and power away with the stiff rare, am loving that...........

Good luck with what ever your choice maybe
