- Who on here still rides rigid bikes for mtbing?
Rigid, singlespeed, singular swift is my most used bike, works equaly well on stuff where a CX would be appropriate, and on stuff which I’d hesitate at on the Pitch!
The only difference is it doesn’t forgive even minor mistakes, so you soon learn to be accurate with line choices. The upside/downside of this is I’m much smoother on the FS bike when I swap back, the downside is I usually take half a day to realize that I can be less accurate and don’t need ot close my eyes an pray each time I have to rely on 6″ of squish to get me through!Posted 5 years agorocketmanMember
Up until recently my mate was riding Cannock on a ’96 Al Carter Tacoma. He used to get white hands with pink blotches because of the vibration and double vision on the descents but otherwise he got round very respectably.
Has recently complemented it with a HT but he still rides round with the forks virtually locked out. He doesn’t like how the the geometry changes when the fork moves.Posted 5 years ago
