First off I live in northern Indiana so most of my riding will be smooth single track, but I also want to take trips down south where the trails are rougher. My upper limit of my price range is $3,000, and I want a full suspension 29er. I've test rode a specialized stumpjumper fsr 29 comp and a Scott spark 29 team. Over all I like the Scott, but it only has 100mm of front and rear travel. Is that enough? Any suggestions on bikes? Any complaints about either bikes I mentioned? Any help would be great. Oh and sorry if there is already posts just like this.

For some reason I imagine turtles being good climbers.
With Propedal turned on, the Stumpy climbs very well. With the shock set to "open" it tends to be a little bouncy. It definitely shines pointed down hill vs up.
