    blue mountain trail ?

    Do blue mountain trails require a bike like Bronson / switch blade?

    can I ride the trails with my pivot 5.7 ?

    I spent a day doing the downhill trails on my Kona Precept DL. It handled the trails great. I would have liked having a downhill bike for the day, but the bike was not holding me back. After that day, I did need to replace my bottom bracket, as it went from making a bit of noise to creaking non stop.
    We are going back this year, and I will be taking my Kona again, but will rent a bike for my downhill day.

    You can ride any bike at Blue. There are a few that ride hard tails there.

    Blue is no different than any of the other local trails, they are just much longer and some are designed in such a way to allow you to carry your speed from top to bottom.

    Of course with that being said, a downhill bike or a long travel (geometry is a bigger factor, in my opinion) bike will most likely allow you to ride longer and with more confidence.
