Hey guys, i´m changing my hardtail for a fullsuspension, and trying to know about the best bike i can get for a budget similar of the stumpjumper comp. There are a lot of bikes out there, what should i look for?

i´ve seen:

specialized pitch, enduro, sjcomp, camber expert, and some treks and a gary fisher roscoe...all in catalog.

I do xcountry and a bit of all mountain. i´m looking for something versatil, light for riding up up up and a lot of comfort going down...

Hope you can help me out a bit.

thanks.

dont think you could go wrong with any of these bikes, but guy I ride with rides a camber comp and loves it and he was on a stumpy hardtail before it. I ride a 2010 fsr xc expert and have zero complaints from the bike.

imo, if you want to climb and are only talking Spec, you want a Camber or a Stumpy.

Tell us where do you ride? What are your trails like? How much climbing? How big are your drops? That kind of stuff.

Test ride the Stumpy and Camber. Also, the Trance and the Fuel EX. I would stay away from the big drop bikes with that much climbing.
