    Austin riders GreenBelt

    Hey Austin.. just wonder what you think is a good set up for green belt.. Suspension setup .. or how would you even classify it as: xc , aggressive xc .. trail?? I know its all preference but i would just like to hear some thoughts! and no rigid please! I'm running 4" front ( Reba SL ) and 4" rear ( RS Monarch 3.3 ) so far everything has been doable .. just a lil harsh at times..but fun.. Seen some guys running dual crown 6+ out there as well.. seems a little over kill....

    Austin is home of the Hammerhead 100. Now known as the Racer X 100.

    But I don't know nothing about suspension, I ride rigid.

    it's all good but... if you're feeling that 4" front/back is a little harsh you'll prolly love 6"

    i've ridden a 6" bike there and that does smooth out the trail quite nicely currently enjoying a rigid fixed 29er tho

    Certainly depends on your riding style, but if you want to do the nastiest trails and roll them
    at high speed with less risk of disk herniation and/or flat tires:

    6+ inch travel fork
    5+ inch travel rear
    fat, high-volume tires running sealant
    less than 33 lb total weight.

    Let the retro-grouches handle this! I'm sure they'll get him on some bike messenger inspired torture rack.
