There isn’t a ton of hardtail content on Pinkbike, but that doesn't mean we've completely forgotten about them, especially as we're aiming to put more time and effort towards value-minded bikes and products in the future. After all, ditching rear-suspension is a sure-fire way to save some big coin. Of course, there are more reasons to ride a hardtail than the price tag, as anyone who spends all their time on one might tell you...
Episode 19 sees the crew banter about all the hardtails we've ridden and cut our teeth on, the pros and cons of that hardtail life, and give a few more whiny reasons why you don't see more reviews of them on the website.
