    Sometimes true, mostly no.

    Just sort of depends. I'd rather have rigid than cheap suspension. The redlines fill that niche nicely.

    Suspension is just a fad, It'll never catch on.

    Yah! Aluminum frame, steel fork [would prefer carbon], 1 gear. Fun to ride, especially when I catch FS guys on the trail.

    I ride a fully rigid geared Karate Monkey (29er). I suspect if it was a 26er, I wouldn't be able to take it.

    Page 10:

    Undeniably there are trails, terrain, events, and riding styles that require something other than
    a standard bicycle to get the best results. But these situations are the exception, not the rule.
    Not a single one of their bikes had suspension on them. Next year in 1993 "ummm so hey we think most of our bikes should have suspension on them.."

    Bontrager steel frame with Ritchy Logic fork. I can't wait to get a full suspension bike, but I love the reliability of the full rigid.

    been riding a fully rigid redline monocog 29er. just bought a specialized enduro elite. the redline is destined for craigslist. dont get me wrong, the redline is fun, but it's not an enduro in terms of capabilities. fully rigid is for hardcore enthusiasts or mellow trails or fire roads.
