- Do you know how to ride a bike or sit on suspension and let it do the riding?
I’m beginning to wonder how many of you whipper snappers let your fancy suspension and big wheels do the talking?
Yeah, you’re faaaaaassssssst, but I guess I would be too on seven inches of terrain disguising travel and big sticky tyres.
I’d be more impressed if you could ‘throw down some sick moves’ full rigid as you session the trail centers…

I have my rigid bike set up in a sit up and beg style with low saddle and high bars and I like to negotiate the trails seated..
Standing up is far from gentlemanly and really takes the skill element out of trail riding IMOPosted 4 years ago
ideally trail riding should be undertaken wearing a good hand stitched leather soled brogue..buzz-lightyearMember
It depends. The Tracer275 is a very efficient seated climbing bike but can just about cope with sprinting. As Lopes says, the saddle is not a seat, it’s a platform for powerful pedalling. Stand when freewheeling, always! Else you are trapped by the saddle and you will crash!Posted 4 years agobenjiSubscriber
You started this thread as well, and from that thread you said
One razz around on Giant’s finest demonstrated that this over-grown jey-boy bike was more capable, faster and more fun handling than my 130mm travel 26er full-sus. It rode like a road bike on flat stuff and descended like a motocross bike on the ruff…hmmmnnnn…

I’ve had rigid and then suspension that barely worked and now due to progress my bike is really good. No reason for me to chose to ride any other way, least of all due to some nobjockey keyboard king.
Whether or not I’m skilful is an irrelevance, I enjoy riding my bike and suggest you do the same it may help you stop typing such twaddle.Posted 4 years agoChunkyMTBMember
Quality of trolling these days is just rubbish.
Still, this one seems to be better than his last attempt.Posted 4 years ago
