Well, am I? (My wife would probably say Yes without even factoring in the Snowdon thing...)
I did Snowdon several years ago, up & down the Llanberis track, on a Santa Cruz Heckler.
Nowadays I ride a Ragley hardtail, one of the modern breed of 'hardcore hardtails'.
I fancy doing Snowdon again this year, this time up the Llanberis and back down the Ranger, linking back to Llanberis town from the bottom of the Ranger path.
Would this be unbearable without rear suspension?
Any advice from experience welcome ...
