    suspension for jumps?

    hi,
    i have a front suspension mtb, i have used it mainly for cycle tracks, but i would like to start jumping and down hill stuff, question is.....is my front suspension enough to cope with the bumps and bangs or do i need rear suspension as well?

    Hmm, hardtails can be used just fine for jumping and downhill.

    It depends on what suspension you have.
