Mountain biking becomes so much more fun riding with less.
Why have rear suspension?
I switched to running a suspension forks in 1990 for hand comfort, substantial increase in speed and control.
But my first full suspension mountain bike in 2013 just added service costs and I loss the feel of the ride and enjoyment.
So now I’m back to basics with no suspension at all!
Like my first true mountain bike (then called an all-terrain bike) in 1985.
I’m now depending on my Brain Injury riding a Jones Spaceframe 29+
