Glentress trail park...

I have been offered a place on a corporate day/ night at Glentress ;)
Knowing nothing of this particular area, I have a couple of questions.
Do I need to take my old Giant NRS full susser, or could I get away with my natty little Scale 10?
The Scale is currently running a double on the front, would I need to revert back to the triple for this place?
I am reasonably fit!

    I rode glentress on a ridged bike many years ago before I got suspension. Sure the ride will be rougher and a bit slower but you don't need suspension to ride these trails

    How about the double v triple question?...

    You'll be fine on a double.

    I went there and wasn't that impressed tbh. I'd heard loads of raving about it so was expecting something brilliant, but it was just like most other English (well, maybe not south of Cannock) and Welsh trail centres. Not bad, don't get me wrong, but there's nothing terrifying there, just stuff that's fun if you go fast and safe if you go slow. The blue was great fun actually.

    Fine on a double and no problem on a hardtail

    Cool... Saves me some mechanical grief, swapping it all out... Plus I can still sell the XT triple as unused ;)
