Drumroll please...weight weenies, prepare to gag...

My wonderful trailbike...portly but more fun than a barrel of monkeys on crack. Always keeps me smiling. Pedals like a hardtail and opens up with 5 incredibly responsive inches of travel on both ends when it needs to. Now with new Panaracer Fire FR 2.4's front and rear.

Also, I got '05 lowers for my '04 Manitou Minute, the main difference being the trick laser-etching on the '05. No decals to worry about coming off. In fact, no decals on them anywhere at all: clean as a baby's bottom.

Having rigid bike instead of suspensios you save weight, I also prefer rigid MTB for racing activities.

i was more thinking about saving your body from the impact of the terrain with front suspension. Especially in the mountains this is almost paramount, unless you go out for short rides.
Also in long climbs you may need a small ring to relax your legs a bit.

I love to ride a rigid bike with only 2 front rings on training and in most one-day conditions , it's fast and you learn to read the track.
But for example for multi-day 100K a day ventures in the hills I will mount a small ring and front suspension. I am no masochist :wink:

its defenytly not the fasted set up imagineble, but this is who i like it with the 32-34 gearing i get everywere, ullrich style,and on technical rock sestions i loose terain on guys who have suspension.i ques it sounds pretty stupid to say that you feel the terain more like this, lets used say i like the feel of this!i would like to add the python 2.35 tyres but no body is selling them!!!
