Hard or Soft Tail for a XCountry riding Clydesdale
I am currently training for a mtn bike triathlon at Wildflower.
I need a new bike. All the bike shop guys are trying to put me on a full suspension. ALL of them.
Back when I rode, Full Suspension was just being developed, and never would have considered it.
Now, I am older, and my body is a bit more fragile so i wonder what the benefits of f/s could be for the my body's durability.
I also wonder what the cost of my uphill times will be. I test rode a gary fisher hifi, and could feel the suspension compressing anytime i was pushing hard on the pedals.
I need to get a bike and start riding it, I can't take too many more spinning classes before I freak out.
Ride hard this week.
