The Argument For Short Travel Bikes - Opinion
I'm with natalot. I think a good take-away from this article and the resulting discussion is this- different bikes build different skills, and in order to be a truly well-rounded, good rider, you occasionally need to step off you trusty steed onto something else. I don't think that you need to ditch you DH sled for a hardtail, but you shouldn't shrug off hardtail riding like it's child's play either. I used to have a stable of different bikes- rigid SS, hardtail, DJ, and an AM rig. I loved switching between the different bikes for different days of the week. It made the same trail have new flavor each time and made me a better rider all-around.
