Looking for a mid travel light enduro/AM (whatever that actually means!) bike ~$2500 thats actually available and kind of narrowed it down to Abajo, Siskiu T8, and Intense 951 Trail. You don't see a lot of reviews for the Abajo and was looking for opinions between those. The things I don't like about the Abajo is the seat is a little further back and these old knees like to be above the pedals, I'm sure the Level brakes would have to go, and not too keen on NX. It does have a nice tire combo and I'm fine with X-Fusion as I've run it before and was happy (actually tried a DPS and went right back to the O2 Pro with the 4 settings). I may ride in Pisgah, Florida, Utah, Colorado all on the bike, not so into parks, more old school backcountry trails. The T8 is SLX, which I really like, entry Fox stuff which is OK, and 4 piston brakes. The biggest downside is I have dealt with their customer service a couple of months ago on my wifes new bike that arrived damaged, a nightmare. The 951 is carbon but a bit more expensive but have top shelf suspension and brakes, but the tires are unknown and more NX.
