To set the scene - I can't afford new hard tail as already building new alpine bike. But I fancy trying a hardtail as I've never had one - maybe I'll learn something about my riding.
Just wondered, what if I up the pressure in my shock to effectively reduce sensitivity to all but major impacts. Do I effectively get an "almost" hardtail. (Would also max out the compression damping if it had that adjustment but it doesn't (Fox RP3).
Yes, I know that it won't be the same as a proper hardtail but I'm not asking for perfection - it's just an experiment in mechanical fudgery.
Anyone tried this ? Any advice ?
