You don't need a big burly bike to hammer most trails. I've run my local trails on true XC, light trail, and "Enduro" bikes as well as on my hardtails. The down times are barely different, favoring the bigger bikes. The up times are ridiculously different favoring the lighter bikes. Unless someone is truly smashing it, an Enduro bike is complete overkill. Of course people will ride what they want, and marketing is still favoring bigger bikes. But this new breed of more agile trail bikes might shift that soon.
