I noticed some riders today going over a bumpy section on the bicycle path today. It was like clock work, just before hitting the rough section they stood up.I was thinking it was either the seat or no suspension. Just how much energy do you lose with a bike with suspension? Is the trade off that much where you loss comfort for the speed you pickup.I wonder how much of a weight difference there is.Will the suspension bike take miles away, where you can't go great distances.I did sit going over the rough area and I didn't think it was that bad. Anyhow that's what I was thinking about when I went to look at the FX and that also made up my mind not to go that way. I know I may have to someday, but I don't know if I'm ready for too harsh of a ride yet. We'll see,George
