Good deal! Yeah those dual suspension bikes are a lot easier on the back. Good luck with it.

Good price on a Good bike so hope you enjoy it. I am still a hardtail rider but for my sort of XC nowadays- It does. Untill the Fast Lumpy downhill comes along and it does take some pushing and chance taking to show the Suspension Boys how it can be done.

Have to admit that Offroading has gone by the board now for me- but everytime I go near those hillls- I wish I had a pair of knobblies fitted.
