Currently riding an old Santa Cruz Blur from way back in 2005 with egg beaters and would like something a bit more burly for the drops and rock gardens......any suggestions? flats or spds?

Probably something with 150mm travel to make the ride comfortable. Wheels size ideally 27.5" to tackle the tight switchbacks

I am curious, as I am new to off-road cycling. Only done Bukit Timah beofre the upgrading. Blue Diamond at Ubin. Both with the same road bike and slick tire, for sight-seeing/curosity. Strong legs more useful than the bike itself, as long as it is off-road-worthy.
