So after not riding a for a little while due to buying my first house I sold my downhill bike leaving me with just a hardtail kona. It's served me well for allot of free riding and jumping, basically my question is do you think a 100mm front travel hardtail will stand upto the abuse it will get at canock chase? I have never been there but as I am now local I would like to ride it.

    Should be fine - I have ridden my Kona Caldera (HT) with 100mm forks over there plenty of times

  • Ah mate good luck with it all. I had to let my Yeti go a while ago now and since then tried to get my DH groove going on my chameleon. Its brilliant...alirght the back end gets a bit skittish on the rough stuff at speed, but it's awesome fun. Just drop the seat, throw it around a bit more and go for it :)
