Opinion - It Should Be Hard, Shouldn't it?
I agree. Seems ironic that we would read an article about new suspension products that will help smooth out our ride and follow it up with an article about how are trails are getting to flowy and smooth. And your point about wheel sizes is spot on. We're moving towards larger wheels to improve how our bikes roll over all the ruts and rocks we complain are missing from the trail. Maybe our bikes have become overkill for the trails available to us. Try jumping back on a hardtail or a rigid bike to make that trail more difficult for you. That's where all this started right? Dudes bombing down dirt trails without 150mm front and back. I agree with Mike this should be hard. It's why we choose to ride our mountain bikes because we're the people that prefer the difficult route not the smoothest. But let's not alienate the people who want to get into the sport because we've been able to improve our bikes and skill set to a point that trails have become too easy for us.
