Hi, I posted this in General but realized it would probably get more responses here. Sorry for the cross post!

I want to buy a soft tail but an experienced bike shop owner I was talking with said all three softtails that he's owned (a Seven, a Salsa, and one other I can't recall) were prone to chainsuck, moreso than either hardtails or full suspension bikes. I'd be interested in some other experiences/opinions before I decide for sure. Thanks in advance! Steve

Sounds like he is the common thread. I've never had chain suck issues, but I'm meticulous about adjustments and maintenance. My soft tail (Moots) had no issues whatsoever.
Thanks for the good word! I got lots of similar responses in the General forum so guess I didn't need to double post after all...
