The last 2 racks of stairs appear endless; your feet feel like they're going explode and your leg muscles are rapidly turning to jelly.

However, if the Endo is so great up and down (for its designed usage) I think it would be considered as �the perfect bike� for its category (at least as close to perfect as there is). My question: what is the absolute best bike for uphill? (Say I wanted to ride to the top of the resort and take the left down. "No downhill for me; I hate adrenaline!") i would guess it would depend on the trail conditions. by up, do you mean fireroad ascents? or technical singletrack climbs? depending on your answer, there will be a different answer. i think most would agree that mini link bikes, because they rely on chain tension to counteract suspension bob, will suffer a bit on technical climbs but excel on smoother fire road ascents and the opposite will be true of a fully active suspension design like the 4x4/horst link design, which uses a pedal platform shock to help with suspension bob. when i had my endo, i had a 160mm fork on it and felt the front end wandered too much with it's slack seat tube angle. the geometry has been tweeked but i think the endo climbs best with a 140mm or 150mm fork. different horses for different courses. no design is perfect and i don't know what the ultimate climbing machine would be suspension design wise. on the real world front i've seen guys on fully rigid out climb guys on xc fs bikes. the lungs and legs make the most difference. design wise its whatever you prefer for you type of riding I just sold my Giant Reign X1, it was AMAZING going uphill with their "meistro suspension" The Life and Adventures of James P.
