A family friend has told me that his group meets down at Tsali twice a year and wants me to join them. As I often ride alone, I am looking forward to some company as I learn to ride mountain. I am having a Ti 29er built that I intend to use, but he told me that Tsali is far better with a soft tail. Is this true? Do any of you use a hard tail there? I am a roadie getting into mt bikes.
