if your riding a HT, why not. thats seriouse abuse on a full suspension frame tho. your joints might hurt a bit after the landing depending on how smooth you landed.
F/S frames are strong, but arent made to take abuse like that...HT would take a hit like that much better.Kenny C. said:Ah, yeah I'm riding a FS (Yeti AS-X) that's the main reason I was worried. What if I put it more air into my shock? Maybe I'll just borrow my friends hardtail...
I don't think a HT would really be all that much stronger, if any really.Master_Jako said:F/S frames are strong, but arent made to take abuse like that...HT would take a hit like that much better.
Kenny C. said:Alright, I might do this then next time I go out, which will probably be Tuesday unless I hit the trails that day. At the very least it will make good footage.
yeah but some of the trials bikes i have seen aren't any stronger than a FR bikeKenny C. said:There's a bit of a difference between a freeride bike and a trials bike, though.
