140mm will also be more forgiving for a newbie, so the argument kind of goes both ways. I think if you plan on keeping this bike for a few years and you expect to improve a bit, a 140 would be ideal. If you only plan to go up once or twice a month and just want to get out there, a hard tail isn’t out of the question but get into any tech trail, ie upper mountain, you really gotta pick your line wisely and you won’t be going as fast.
Beg to differ. I usually smoke the times on the hardtail

Like Trailslayer pointed out- for new riders, trail speed rarely changes too much between hardtail and full squish. The difference is that a full suspension bike will be easier on your body at the end of a long day, and will stay relevant to your riding style for longer. Thats another vote from me for a decent full suspension bike.

Full suspension (like disc brakes and dropper posts) make things easier. IMO as a beginner, make things as easy as you can. When you're an experienced rider, a hardtail is a fun way to mix things up and keep the ride fresh.

Buy a full suspension bike if you can, and avoid advice from bike shops that sound like Italian pastries. Go ask the guys at Kinetik what they choose to ride Burke with, their advice will be more relevant than the roadies.

All the best riders start out with hard tails. Instead of letting the bike do the work for you , you learn how to compensate. Which makes you a better rider when you hop on a full suspension. There really is no argument about that.

Hi, I came across this thread searching for a place to wash my bike after a ride. The posts I found date back to 2010 though, so I wanted to ask the question again: is there a place to wash your bike near Coquitlam center mall? I just moved to this area and the condo I am in doesn't have a hose available.
