According to MBR.
It's very nice of them to give that approval.
Although they say,
"here at MBR …we believe that a full suspension bike will take you further, faster and simply be more fun to ride.
But with prices on the rise it's becoming harder to get a full-susser."
So hardtails aren't as much fun and are just a bike you get if you can't afford a full-susser.
I actually subscribe to MBR, but their sweeping statements, "everyone should ride an xyz now" does wind me up.
