I have been riding a Giant Warp DS for around 5 years now which has done its job on XC trails. Recently I have been getting in to a lot of downhill riding and have decided it's time to upgrade my bike. Right now I am looking at the specialized Enduro Comp. ($3,000) or Pitch pro ($2,400). The reason I am not looking to buy a DH only bike is because I do not want to restrict myself to only being able to do DH on the bike. I want to have a versatile bike that I can ride XC with AND take to the DH courses.
The thing that makes me unable to decide on which bike to get is the price. I am a college student so price is definitely something that I am taking in to consideration. I want to know your guys' opinion on whether it is worth it to spend the extra $600 to get the enduro or will the pitch be enough for me?
Another thing I was wondering is when does Specialized come out with their 2012 lineup of bikes? Maybe it's worth waiting until next years bikes come out to upgrade.
