Hello!! I’m going to be doing the Park City Point 2 Point this year and am looking for bike advice.
I have two options for bikes, based upon my budget -
1, Lighten up my XL Rocky Mountain Instinct (140/140) - my research shows I can get it from 13.6kg/30lbs (GX/Stans Flow/ (F)Cushcore/Maxxis 2.4 WT etc) to 11.9kg/26.2lbs. or:
2. Buy a hardtail XC bike and add a dropper and beef up the tires.
My equipment concerns and considerations at the moment are weight of bike and geo to help me make it through the 75miles. My riding style is more jumpy and enduro than XC - if that helps?
