I'm looking into both hardtail and fs 29ers for my next bike. I'd like a hardtail on most of the stuff I ride but would prefer a fs about 25% of the time. Does anyone have a fs but keep the back shock locked out most of the time?

A FS will add to your bike-
Cost
Maintenance
Weight
Squeaks
Flex

The big wheels give you a better ride than little wheels and for many of us there's no desire for FS. YMMV... :)
Don't forget to add this to your list: More fun

I've got a cheap Windsor Ghost with FS and it's kinda bouncy riding trails because it's a single link but on jumps it lands so smoothe. I like it.

Kind of depends on what you want - all out speed over, say, 1.5 to 2 hours, or more comfort over those 2 hours and even longer.

Personally I ride HT for the weight savings - I'm adjusting my body to the punishment because I felt like FS was just too heavy over several hours.
