I’ve noticed there seems to be an increase of people riding aggressive hard tails in places like Lysterfield, they all seem pretty happy and will say things like , it’s all you need to ride here , so quick , etc etcYup, it certainly is. It's more than I've seen a SC Chameleon frame for at retail.
I've opened my mind to an aggro hardtail over winter to save the maintenance on the FS bikes. It'll also sharpen up my riding too.
It’s kind of sparked my interest as well , not sure if it’s enough to take the step , but interested all the same
