DJ and FR: HT or DS?

hey lee,
i’m thinking about buying a bike (mainly for jumps and drop offs), should i buy a hardtail or a bike with front and back suspension.

NorCal’s Taylor Calvert boosts his hardtail back when he was a wee tot.


– You get better, lighter, stronger components for the same price.

– Nimbler, more responsive ride.

– Strongly encourages you to learn good technique.

Give ‘er!

    My Giant STP was probably my favorite bike until I made it explode (not that they are weak I’m just a sucker for used parts and a lousy mechanic).
