Suspension Bikes

I've found that trials has helped me to improve my other bike skills and lately mtb has helped my trials by reminding me that you can pedal across some gnarly terrain, often in places where we stop and hop bit by bit.

I've been dreaming of more engagement points and a more nible over all geo so I've made the leap- here's the bike I've ridden for about 2 years now. update soon (hopefully) to come.

I have been having a blast getting into mountain biking in the past 3 years. I think knowing trials definitely gave me an edge. After going through a few bikes I scored a demo on this one I am finally happy with!

I agree that trials has helped with my mountain bike skills. I have a Specialized fatbike that I ride in the woods. Its not a fs just a fork. Not sure how to add a picture though.

I've always been a hater on full suspension. Rigid front rear is my ideal. Last week my lbs threw this old pig at me... anyone have one back in the day? Interested in seeing how she rides, hopefully get one run on my local downhill trailzzz

lots of trials... then a couple hours at the dirt jumps... then come Sunday morning no one to ride with... so my first solo ride of the Dragon's Spine and the White Mesa loop

hi tonk june24 photo looks like you scored a GT i-drive. i've got one but I think its an older model than yours. it was fun in the day and the I-drive seemed to work pretty good. only downfall with it had a bushing and not bearing frame. bushings seemed to wear out fairly quickly. bike seemed a little light duty for any near serious dowhill action,squirrely!

Here's my latest addition. Big plush suspension, fairly slack geometry, and the "shapeshifter" makes this bike pretty awesome descending and not too much extra work getting back to the top.

  • A place to share bike things that are not trials! Here's a steep roll down we did this weekend!
  • White Mesa is an opwn space area in central New Mexico with awesome geography... and a well used bicycle loop almost 9 miles long (with some bonus bits if you're willing to hike back up afterwards). Our once a year has become a regular and here we were again, with an even larger group than normal, so I tried to catch the highlights
  • Hey guys, just hoping everyone is OK over there. Some of the craziest fires I've heard of outside Australia. Stay safe!
