HT upgrade finished

Rode my HT for 1st time in about 4 months - it is a pretty OK frame (Trek SLR), so I got some better components for it to lighten it up and make it ride a little better - in fact an amazing transformation, it doesn't feel like the same bike.. climbs with ease.

Anyway main reason for my thread was to say how much I had taken for granted how good a job a FS does at soaking up the bumps, it's all I've ridden for ages - I had forgotten how much a HT get's kicked around at the back.

Was something cool and rugged about riding the HT - was really fun to ride..

Agreed! After switching to FS in '96, I got back on a hardtail (as a second bike) at the end of '02. Forgot how fun it is! Ride the same trail differently on the two bikes. As is, the HT gets about as much use as the FS, though it becomes my primary in winter and gets ridden less in summer.

Viva la two bike minimum!
