I am thinking about getting a full-suspension bike for my commute to work. I have never owned or even spent much time on a soft-tail.
The main reason is that now, in winter, I have to go over many snow piles and ice mounds. Sometimes these snow piles are 2 to 3 feet high and are a mix of ice and snow.
With my present Trek "Mountain Trek" with no shock-suspension front or rear, I often get stuck.
I am wondering if a full suspension bike might do better in these conditions. Is there any disadvantage to using a soft-tail for street use?
Can anybody provides some feedback, comments, and suggestions?
