    It depends which category you’re riding in. If its in a team, HT will be faster. If you’re solo, you might want the comfort of the FS. Take both. One will probably have a mechanical if the weather is as bad as previous years (sticky mud, long grass & derailleurs). HTH

    Yay, a team mate on the forum. I am taking both so am no help at all!

    Depends how you define enjoyment?

    however, If it rains – hardtail.

    Hi Guys / ladies

    Which bike is better suited to the course at Mountain Mayhem, full suss Mount Vision or Stumpjumper hardtail??

    Regards

    Colin, I would bring the one you feel happiest riding in all conditions.
    And also the quickest 😆

    Both, use the FS whilst it’s dry – today – and convert the HT to SS for when it starts raining – Friday evening until 2pm Sunday afternoon, when it’ll stop and the sun reappears just as your packing your tent away.

    what others have said, ht set up for mud, fs for dry. Prepare to use the ht 🙂

    This year I’ll be taking 3 bikes, full sus with skinny mud tyres, geared HT with skinny mud tyres & SS hardtail with skinny mud tyres. Anything with as much clearance as you can get!

    Going to be a hot one at mayhem this year…. I’m out for the season with my leg and the last 2 events I was signed up for have been glorious (must be a sign)….
