I thought this forum was beyond threads like this. It doesn't even have anything to do with retro mountain biking... still it is making me laugh, a lot :lol:

IMHO, a double triangle round tubed light and compliant hardtail steel bike will never be beaten ever. the end.

And my dad is much bigger than all yours!

cheers, Al. Keep it real ride steel.

Not everyone has the skillsets to maneuver a hardtail enough to make it go fast.


I've probably had far too much Barolo to make any valid comments :wink: but as a full-sus and h/t rider, for me at least, I reckon ameybrook has it spot on. Being a bit of an anorak I regularly time myself on routes and tbh it doesn't make a lot of difference which bike I'm riding but hell are the downhills fun on the full-sus? :D . . . now if I could just get those skill levels up to scratch I could sell it :wink:
