Full rigid SS is the way to go. I'm on my 3rd season and have never had a mechanical issue on the trail, no squeaks, creeps, or peeps out of her.

Speed is the enemy when riding rigid at the brook. Drier conditions = higher speeds = less comfort. Combination of fewer parts to wear out and slower speeds makes rigid the ideal high moisture setup. Not that anyone rides then.

Opinions are like pimples, they vary in amount and cover different areas.

There is no or, you're going to lose it.

I don't know how so many guys can ride those things year after year. I tried it for half a summer, but just couldn't take the beating any more.


I tried it for half a lap at SB before I couldn't take it anymore! Full squish all the way.

The dry conditions have definitely changed the ride a bit. I switched to a small block Geax AKA tread a while back and it's helped but I still get an occasional spin out at the top of the steeper climbs. The dust acts like a lubricant on some of the smooth roots and hard packed surfaces. Momentum is definitely your friend these days.

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
