After reading the article of Roland Green winning a World Cup race on a full suspension rig I wanted to dredge up the old arguments once again. Which do you prefer, F.S. or HT? and why?
It seems like full suspension designs are getting better with each passing year and the weight has dropped considerably for the XC models. It seems like more and more Pros are now using them for races. So what's your take on this?
I'm a big fan of full suspension bikes. The weight of my bike is comparable to a hardtail and it keeps you from getting too beat up on the trail. This helps you conserve energy when you are on a long ride or during a race. Now I know that a FS bike will cost you much more than a comparable HT but I rather pay a little extra to have the advantages of full suspension. Plus the prices of quality FS bikes are coming down.
So what do you think? Flame away....
