Hello as an avid XC rider (without the spandex.. LOL) I want to dabble in something a little different. I have decided I want a bike that will handle more extreme trail and DH and also be able to hit some big air. I was stuck between a slopestyle and freeride bike.... After speaking to some friends they have said for what I want to do a freeride bike is probably the better choice. Searching the internet only confuses me as alot of bike manufacturers label their bikes as freeride/downhill... But this doesnt make sense as a freeride bike should have different geo!! If I tell you what I THINK I am looking for could you hammer some bike suggestions out.. Must go up and down (2xchainring) 150-170mm travel be able to handle big air (no DH rigs) but be able to take on DH cost up to 2,000 pounds or $2500 (someone has stolen my pound key!) Please advise!! Thanks in advance for your help!
