I've been a hardtail rider for about 6 years now, but I might have the opportunity to go full suspension soon. The rub is that I really only have room for one bike right now, and I want something that I can occasionally take out to paved trails when necessary.
I'm trying to figure out how much travel I'll want on my next bike (I'm really liking the Santa Cruz 5010 right now with 130mm travel
), and curious to see what kind of fork/shock travel you guys have that are riding DFW trails with full suspension. I really haven't had any opportunities to try out a FS bike yet, just going on my hardtail experience.
