first time posting, long time user. Looking for advice. currently ride 2016 anthem 27.5=xcountry bike. trails i ride in ny are more techy=rocky, rooty, hilly. not a social rider. ride for the speed, thrill, and exercise. looking for a 29er trail bike between $2k-$3k to go faster and soften the blows more than my anthem. have it narrowed to giant trance 3, salsa horsethief sx, and kona process 134. also, looked at yt izzo and jeffsy but not sure about buying cd. anybody able to compare any of these? thanks and stay healthy.
