random thought for the day..

know how you get hardtails? has there ever been a rear suspension only bike? i'd guess it would handle as dodgy as you would suspect...just wondered if anybody had ever tried it?

The first bikes to have suspension only had rear suspension. I'm talking about bikes from the 1910's or 20's (I don't know the dates, just guessing by the pictures I'm trying to remember)
