I am interested in Marathon MTB and eventually one day trying to do the TransAlp race. I have watched some videos on you tube and there is a mix of fully and hard tail bikes. I would guess the hard tails have harder time coming down hill and with lockout on the fully, there is no advantage to a hard tail. right?
So what would you guys recommend as a few makes and models that I should look at and test ride? What is the most important criteria in a marathon bike (Weight, travel, or something else)?
