Well I just looked at the new Anthems and I think they look very good! Maestro has a great reputation for pedalling.
There is a lot of surprisingly low range gear on off the peg bikes until you get well north of £5k.
I wouldn't want to ride a very expensive fs through winter.
Default for your wants used to be Giant Anthem 29er with some upgrades.
Giant frame and 29er or normal and 26?
Moaned? I've obviously been riding selfishly, never had a moan.
Reba is probably the best comoromise of performance/price.
What extra you spend you'll likely get back used.
Ironing out washboard is a tough ask - small bump sensitivity without excessive dive
I train on what are likely to be many of the tracks on this (because I hate traffic) and I'd say a HT with larger (but not draggy) tyres would be perfect. Trails are fast and the jarring adds up.
Read some bad feedback on the new Addex Schwalbe Thunderburts - big wobbles from deformed carcasses etc.
Ordered my favourite Racing Ralph instead and..... wobble from new. All the hassle of mounting it tubeless and now its take it off, clean it up, pack it up and send back. Probably CBA but its likely the last stupidly named tyre I buy.
Training Peaks and a heroic score
My Fox on my Spearfish is the same. Positive detente to trail and climb but not too or from descend. However it doesn't move away from descend ever
