Going to Tahoe for the weekend and I'd love to hit up Northstar for some downhill. Is it a bad idea to take a hardtail [Specialized Hardrock] down? Not planning anything extreme, just want to do some nice downhill and hopefully make it down in one piece.

Would it be more worth it to just rent one of their DH bikes? Does anyone go down on a hardtail!?

Thanks in advance.

A buddy of mine just went up on a Spec P.3, SS, with a DJ2 dropped to 90mm up front. He shredded Karpiel, Boondocks, Livewire. Sure it might not have been the most comfortable thing, but he was able to clear everything.

I took my 4'' full susp. XC bike 2 years ago. I had a pretty good time. To get the most out of the hill I would recomend to rent a bike. I would not do it again without at least 6'' of travel.
My two cents....

If you're going to head up there, you might as well get the Snowbomb Tahoe card that's only $20. You get a free ticket to Northstar as well as several free bike rentals and many other deals. That's what I play to do at least.

Wow thanks! I usually get a snowbomb card in the winter, I didnt even think about getting one for the summer!
