I’m planning on buying a mountain bike soon. I live in Florida where we have a lot of soft sandy trails but I also like to travel to North Georgia's mountains. I am looking for a “Do-it-all” bike. I set aside $4500 and have a lineup of possible options. I realize I don’t have a vast knowledge of mountain biking and thus looking for usable input. I understand I could save a lot of money by investing in a hardtail, but I would really prefer a full suspension bike that I do not have to upgrade anytime soon but has the ability to be upgraded. My current line-up includes in no particular order: Scott Genius 920 Specialized Stumpjumper Comp Carbon 29 -12-Speed Canyon Spectral CF 9.0 Ibis Ripmo YT Jeffsy 29 Niner Rip 9 RDO 2-Star NX Eagle Kona Process 153 CR 29 I would prefer some input on best value for the money, and pro’s & con’s. How would you rank these bikes? I will also take input on other bikes to consider.
