The Benefits of a Full Suspension Mountain Bike
There are many different types of mountain bikes on the market, but one of the most popular is the full suspension mountain bike. A full suspension bike is ideal for riding off-road and gives you more comfort, confidence, and speed. These bikes also have a more rigid back end, which allows for maximum power transfer when climbing or sprinting. A full suspension bike can also have a locking suspension system that helps you climb inclines. There are also many other benefits to a full suspension bike.
One of the benefits of a full-suspension bike is that it is forgiving and makes up for any shortcomings in a rider’s skill level. Full suspension bikes also inspire confidence in the rider, which allows them to master more difficult trails and improve faster. It’s important to know how to properly tune a full suspension mountain bike before you spend any money. In addition to understanding how to properly tune the suspension, you should also learn how to handle the bike’s weight and riding style.
When riding on rough trails, a hardtail can feel less planted and chaotic. We also noticed that the MHT 8.9 couldn’t stay smooth through eroded trails and had less traction when bombing downhill. It was also difficult to maintain rhythm when the trail was rocky or lumpy. Neither bike was ideal for smooth bridleways or rocky sections. The Boardman MHT 8.9 is a good example of a good hardtail with a surprisingly modern geometry.
