Might have been tempted to attempt this on the Mission, but alas I'll be in Gibraltar for a wedding.
Now where was that thread on glentrool?

Not trying to be hard but it has some decent front bounce and anyway it's not much of a climb is it? :roll: :lol:

Am I right in thinking this Inners place is a little rough? Is rigid out of the question (keep in mind my wrist still aches when riding)?

Cannot decide what to ride. Boulder would be the best idea but its so unreliable- brakes break every time (and I've run out of spare Onza parts), fork is too stiff with too little travel, and the shifting is affected with the suspension movement. Would need some serious fettling and development before Inners I guess.

No bounce, no gears and its not retro.

At Inners you'll be glad of a bit of bounce but rigid is possible if your a better rider than me, thats pretty much everyone :lol:
