There is a thread on a local motorbike forum titled, “Don’t be a Twatwaffle”.
Love to see people like Ossie and Love2Fly jumping on a thread about the functionality of the forum to perpetuate the South African prejudices that you need a dual sus for any MTB, that hardtails are for poor people and that being 82nd on a Strava segment rather than 87th justifies their input.
Thanks guys. Let’s race and measure fun on any uphill, downhill, long or short ride.
One of the best things about this sport is the diversity and different options that we are blessed to have.
I have friends that ride rocky singletrack on 700c gravel bikes and another who rode a 500km tar and gravel route on a steel trail hardtail.
Not to to say I won’t ride a dual sus trail bike but my hardtails have served me well and it would pay any doubters to try a modern trail HT for interest’s sake
Before you post, think if your input is needed and if it’s useful or entertaining.
Otherwise maybe go back to your Banting smoothie and indoor trainer to get a top 400 in a Zwift race.
