    So who else wants to go back to a hardtail?

    Been riding a Trail429 for over a year now. Sold my 2015 SIR9 back in March before anything bad happened to the frame. And all I want now is to dump the full susp and go back to a hardtail. The full susp does have many pluses but I really just want a simpler way of life again.
