... don't go crashing into rock gardens with your rear tyre at "maximum traction with rear sus" low-pressure, unless you like truing nicely buckled wheels and fixing pinch flats.
Bugger, it is confirmed that I have forgotten how to "ride light", but also that a reasonably hardcore hardtail really is rather good fun (if a bit more speed limiting than a full bounce machine).
S'all bikes though innit? All good.
Re. t'other thread on the perfect bike, i don't think that is possible to have "one", but with a cross bike for commutes, the NP mega with coils for alps and bike park days, and the 29er hard tail with a dropper, its pretty close.
Now, if only I could get that bloody fat bike niggle out of my head!
