The last ride.

Next time I'm going to ride, it will be on a fully. I have the parts, tomorrow the fisher is getting built.

Same here. Just put the finishing touches and dialed in the shifters on a Kona Kikapu frame. Can't wait!

Not necessarily, it will take me a bit to get accustomed to a fully again, do pick up on things fast though.

Nope, everyone knows that people lose all of their skill when they go from a HT to a FS!

reminds me of, "We can rebuild it, we have the technology"

Are you moving all your parts over from your HT to the fisher? If not, why couldn't you just pull out the HT and ride it again?

You have $4,000 you can give me? I'm moving the parts over because my back just can't take the abuse of a hardtail as well as it used to.
