Hello.

Thinking about buying a new do it all bike. The Radon Swoop has a good spec and looks like its ready for anything!

But after a friend of me bought a Mongoose Pinn`r and i saw what happens with the rear suspension when you apply the breaks and the rear shock gets all stiff and ****, i said to my self that i dont want **** like that.

So am saking of anyone know if the rear suspension will lock up on this bike when the breaks are in use?

all bikes have problems with suspension and braking..best to brake before bumbs then roll through them...but the FSR type suspension on that bike is probably the best suspension under braking IMO.

I thought that bikes with floating shock or calipters could avoid it?

My Merida One Five O 880D has a floating calipter, and it is plush and nice even when i lock the breaks.
