i tried riding scott scale, spark, genius, and gambler.
scale is too hard.
genius is too slow uphill, and more for cruising and jumping.
gambler makes sense only if i have a ski lift.
spark is a perfect bike for what i do:
– short rides in a local park;
– small jumps and easy downhills;
– short and steep uphills;
– local 2 hour marathons or xc races;
– weekend 2h easy rides.
i was considering genius, but it does not support the reality of my daily routine.
enduro seems romantic, kind of like surfing, so getting closer to that lifestyle by buying a product is appealing.
but most of my rides are approx. 1 h without big challenges for which genius is designed.
and genius will make me lazy on the fitness side.
i will stick to spark maybe also as a reminder of my fitness addiction from few years ago.
and it still allows me be a bit of an explorer.
