 racer14 I can see where you're coming from. But with a colour like that its hard to tell, because the light changes it.

 If he's that fast on a hardtail he must be mental on a full sus

 hardtails are awesome because you get to know the trail more, you can feel the rocks and roots more which make you learn better how to go through them the smoothest and fastest

 @boostmaster - totally agree! thats how i first got my start, riding hardtails for so many years gave me a great skills base which transfered over to my first full suspension! awesome video and filming

 You know I think "Wow I would be such a boss to be riding a sick hardtail with a 160mm fork and I would be so cool." But then I realize "wait that is going to hurt my back and im going to crash"
haha
  • + 2
 just lean back and you wont crash. though I've never had a full suspension
  • + 2
 Why are you going to hurt your back? Stay loose and don't sit down over the rough stuff! You'll be fine. I ride nothing but hardtails (as do a lot of people) and I've never had a back issue.

 I have been forced to ride my HT for the past 2 months due to my Fully being cracked , I love this little bike and I love ripping it past the pyjama boys with the colour coordinated laces and fingernails

 Anyone else remember reading the Dirt Magazine interview with Jinya Nishiwaki, about his seasons spent working in Whistler for Chromag? I remember him saying he only rode hardtail in Whistler and thinking “wow, he must be good on one!” ..... Well, there was the proof! Definate VOD Salute

 Great to see a film focused on a hardtail. Great to see people still riding hard on a hardtail. Everything seems to be full-sus orientated these days. I think I'll ride hardtails til the day I die, I love them.
