    Cool, lets get everyone to hammer around Glentress on their hybrids then.

    Was the person who told you this a cabbie? They know everything.

    In fairness, there's no good reason for no hammering along singletrack on a road bike, grip permitting. Mtb's are for softies who can't get enough gears and who need a soft saddle.

    I'll meet you down in CwnCarn, or any other Welsh/Scottish trail centre and we'll soon see how soft the MTB crowd are :wink:
