Hello, I've been a mtn biker for 15+ years now always riding on hardtails. I'm looking into maybe getting a used 8"+ travel freeride/downhill bike to play with but am wondering how most of you get up the mountain in the first place in order to ride down it? Seems like a dumb question but pedaling a 40 pound super plush bike up hill sounds pretty hard. I imagine a lot of you are racers, I'm not one but still want to try a downhill rig out. Do most of you ride downhill only at ski areas where you can ride a chair lift up? Ride in areas where someone can shuttle you up with a truck? Or do some of you simply walk your downhill rigs up the mountain? Just curious.
