    I gave in.

    This spring I purchased my first rigid ss, a crave sl, and did very little to it. I road it for several 100 miles before I went back to riding one of my 3 other mtn bikes. Now the season is turning so i usually put up my two sus bikes and ride my fat and hardtail. So since I sold my geared HT, I purchased a sus fork for my rigid ss. I want get said fork until Friday so it is still a rigid. I also ordered a set of carbon traverse fattie wheels so I should end up gaining about 2 lbs on my current sub 20 bike bummer. But I am looking forward to bombing some rooty dh without killing my hands. I know with the addition of the sus fork the bike will be ridden more. So I will still have a ss just not rigid.

    No shame in ditching rigid.

    I tried it for about a month and decided it wasn't for me. Put a fork on it and have been happy ever since.

    Rigid was fine. Suspension is fine.
    My wrists, kidneys and race times like suspension.

    Nothing wrong with going back to suspension fork. My rigid bike has its place for training and fun but I couldn't use it 100%. If I could only have one bike I can easily say it would NOT be rigid.

    I ran my first SS full rigid for quite awhile, but then it just seemed silly. I figure anything that keeps you in the saddle longer is a good thing. Not getting beat up in the rocks keeps me in the saddle longer.
