    Hardest? :?
    You only need two tools: WD40 and Duck Tape.
    If it doesn't move and should, use the WD40.
    If it shouldn't move and does, use the tape.

    Hmmm, well my old A-Line was a bit of a pig unless you were going pretty straight and pretty fast, jumped well though.

    I fixed it by selling the censored .

    I hear the orange 222/223/224 family are a bit of a bucking bronco if you don't ride clipped.

    they are all very hard to ride up a hill.

    my DH bikes are both 'ard.

    When my Bighit landed on my chest it felt pretty hard. I couldn't breath for a while. They wouldn't give me an x-ray so I still don't' know if I was broken or just bruised.

  • There all hard if your trying. Though the French Mega qualifying run was quite good fun last year.

    rode the Lapierre froggy around the track at bike radar live - that was pretty damn hard to ride on flat/uphill as its an FR monster and just refuses to go up! Would be an amazing Alp's bike if there were lifts to the top though!

    never ridden a dh bike. would like a bash though. i've ridden a slopestyle bike dh, and my enduro. both feel awesome, although proper steep alpine stuff kinda made my spesh feel a lil small, especially when everyone's caining it past on full on dh rigs!
    I said hit the brakes not the tree!!

  • The hardest bike I have ridden is when I get a new DH bike untill you have ridden it in. The present one that I've got was hard to start of with untill I got the hang of it.
