I've got a hybrid and a road bike and lately I've been getting and urge to go the local mtb trail park to see what the fuss is about mountain bike riding.
Well...I can see what the fuss is about now...the constant concentration, the winding trails, jumps, dips, tree branches, bridges, etc... Its just awesome.
What I wanted to know is if any of you hybrid riders have taken your bikes to a mountain bike trail park and how the bike handled it.
My experience was that my 35mm tyres were fine, the front suspension was good enough...but I have a sneaky suspicion that if I do it too frequently I'll damage the bike...
I was doing a few small jumps towards the end and in the back of my mind I'm thinking "this bike wasn't designed for this..."
By the way I've got a Scott Sportster 20 and the trails were flatter trails...not full-on DH runs.
