i have been riding the trails recently with a buddy but he only has one nice bike so i have been riding a mongoose haha. Everything about it sucks as you could imagine or as you know. So i want to get my own mountain bike but i want a SS, i ride a fixed gear road bike as exercise and for fun and what not so i want to take the simplicity to the trails. Now to my questions:
Is it recomended to buy a SS MTB already assembled or should i piece one together? I put my fixed gear together from just a frame so i know how to work on bikes and such.
For those of you who do ride SS do you have a suspension fork or rigid?
Anyone who has any opinions or advice it would be greatly appreciated.
