As much as I like riding Singletrack, I might do more bikepacking next year on my Surly. Maybe even switch to Moloko Bars, sorta like the Jones.

I'm with Erik. Rigid was my ride up until '94 or so. I rode rigid frames bikes down VT ski hills in those days. I remember my hands being numb at the end of the day.

I appreciate a little suspension today....
Bro suspension drives me crazy when I am trying to hit jumps. I don't have a lock out on SID's so they just compress instead. :banghead:

I rode rigid from 83 to 94 but was younger and stronger then. That said, I also remember having to be more focused on picking my line to get through the technical spot where with a full suspension I can just ride over the obstacles and the 4.5” tires on 26” wheels comes close to that too, just not sure how a 2.8” 29er will compare.

For any New England riders that are interested, Fatty Fest 2018 is at Gunstock on Super Bowl Sunday (9-1). I went last yr at Waterville Valley and despite 5° and 25-35mph winds, it was a great time. Lots of 45NRTH swag handed out. Info at fatbikenh.com
