The Argument For Short Travel Bikes - Opinion
I completely agree with Levy, that said I have never owned a DH rig, but I also started on a hard tail and on the North Shore and that is a steep learning curve. It definitely taught me about line choice and kicked my ass more than once. Now on a 160 mm travel bike, I find it is all I need for the trails I ride. I have always wanted a bike I can pedal up as well as shred down. Living at the base of Mt Fromme where you can't shuttle anyways makes this an easy choice for me.
