Just bought a new Scott Scale 30, this has disks and decent suspension, both of which are new to me, so I thought I would get down with the yoof and buy an MBUK to see whats going on in modern land (and it had a freebie beanie hat thing)
What the hell?, its all hucking this, jumping that, big air t'other, seems you need at least 6 inches of travel both ends and full body armour to even step out of the door, I wouldn't mind but most of the trails featured in the pics I could ride on my rigid without too many problems.
Am I getting old?
Whats going on?
Will I be shunned by these younger riders with their springs and stuff?
I'm only 19 and I often ride rigids on trails, but I do notice that people my age buy bikes based on what others will think about them whilst riding, no matter whether it's good value or quality. It's all about the name
