Mountain bike help? Scott MTB
So I have been looking for a MTB. I'm interested in hardtail bikes, since they are usually lighter and faster. When I look at full suspension bikes, they seem to be able to sustain more extreme riding. My question is, how much more can a full suspension sustain than a hardtail bike? is it worth it to go for the more expensive full suspension? would I have to worry about the bike jumping off a rock riding a hardtail? thanks in advance!
