    Gots to love the hardtail

    I have to say, this forum hits on all the killer topics. I ride a trek elite 9.8 hard tail...it's the fastest bike i have ever come in contact with and the control is excellent. I ride most downhill trails with a buddy of mine who rides a tricked out Kona dually and i can beat him down 9 times out of ten...why? well i do take some harder hits then he might, but i have much more control and feel for my bike. Thats what you get from riding a hard tail. So all you riders out there sportin the hardtail, you guys know whats up. Peace out

    If you want spectacular results, you have to know how to treat your bike badly.

    If there comes a day when you do go dually I am sure you will be faster still. Your skills will generally surpass riders who have always ridden a squishy.

    Hardtails definatly build more skills than f/s. I learned all my slow speed skills on my old Trek 7000.

    This might sound old school, but if a person really wants to get good at mtbiking they should start on a hardtail and then progress to f/s

    I only ride hard tail. I just like the feeling better. I feel that i can feel the trail a little bit better. A friend of mine let me use his f/s and i didnt like it half as mich as on a hard tail.
