Gus you just had to didn't you
Its easy to go faster on a properly set up FS bike
I can not bomb the bombable stuff on my HT. Its just not conducive to my body.
I can not climb as well on my FS as the HT
My Carbon HT is insanely light, but does not have the aggressive handling characteristics of my FS
It is more "Flickable" but it does not turn nearly as well as the FS.
What do I prefer?
All day long I prefer the FS. Life is fast on the FS....everything is a blur every part of my body is at eases at the end of a ride. Though I keep my suspension stiff there is enough there to take the edge off.
Post up the pics
