- hardtail or full suss, which do you want to ride most?
Not had the hardtail long, but it was more fun to ride than i thought it would be & was a lot harder on the legs round Thetford than the FS due to having to hover over the saddle all the time.
Going today & as I haven't ridden the FS for a few weeks I'm taking that, but the HT would be just as much fun – perhaps more fun actually around somewhere like Thetford.Posted 7 years agoOnzadogSubscriber
I had hoped that you'd be able to answer the question Jedi. I was toying with the idea of doing a skills session with you later in the year (busted shoulder right now) and asking you which bike I should bring for training. Both get ridden in the sxame way, on the same stuff at siomilar speeds with the same people. I tend to favour which ever one already dirty or whichever one is having kit or settings tweaked.Posted 7 years agoneninjaMember
I bought a 100mm travel XC FS – Anthem X
Within a month I'd sold my carbon hardtail as it just didn't get used. The Anthem was more comfortable and quicker pretty much everywhere in the real world. I love that fact I can do a ride and not get back feeling beaten up.
A mate who loves riding a hardtail (he owns a Slayer FS but it almost never gets used) is considering getting a short travel FS since I got mine as you feel so much less fatigued from the bumps.Posted 7 years agocookeaaSubscriber
This makes for interesting reading (To me at least) the emerging impression I get is that for many people a relatively “Short travel” FS (sub 4”) is the closest thing to a “Do it all” bike where the various comics would have you believe something in the 5.5-6” travel range is a “one bike to rule them all” type machine….
Is that a fair interpretation?Posted 7 years agoforgotmenameMember
I have a foes prolite for xc and local riding, and a new fxr for proper riding, both air curnutts set up for me, small bikes done around 700miles in 5 weeks, it rocks mate. Off to cham in 4 weeks with the fxr. Check my posts from a month or 2 ago, theres pics of both there somewhere, id piost pics now but i cant get into my flickr account.Posted 7 years ago
