After about 7 years not touching a bike I had a ride over Easter up at Mansfield and am hooked again, I can’t work out how I’ve gone this long without riding. I’ve still got my 2008 Tance X1 but as would be expected after that long without any love it’s got a few issues, mainly the piston seals in the brakes seem to be stuffed. I’ll probably fix that up a little, but it’s got me looking at new bikes. I really prefer going down than up which has led me to look at enduro bikes. How would a modern 150-160mm enduro bike compare to my Trance X1 in climbing terms? I’m making the assumption that it would kill it descending but I do need to be able to get to the top to enjoy the downs.
