    Back Yard Trail Charlotte NC

    Going to Charlotte next Saturday for the SORBA Board of Directors meeting. Will ride the Back Yard Trail system. Which bike is better/more fun for these trails, HT or AM?

    Either, but I prefer AM there. There are a number of features that lend themselves more to all mountain bikes.

    The trail is very rocky and rooty in places so I prefer something with a little cushioning. It's a very tight with not many oportunities to sit down.

    Yeah, I see what you both mean. Many features, very unique none the less, that would be better attacked with an AM. I chose to bring my 26in HT and rode pretty hard. I skipped the gargantuan features I felt needed more suspension to handle. Next time. Very cool trail network packed into such a small area. Hats off to Tarheel Trail Blazers for maintaining this one.
