    Hardtails are for looks mostly and a poor choice to ride any distance. If you don't have any back problems now, you will have after you get one.:D

    I had a hard tail for one year, it was cool, but harsh. Fast off the line, loud and vulgar in appearance. If I were going to do another, I’d get the 5lbs. memory foam in the seat, that way you can “cheat” butt death a tad and still maintain traditional hard tail lines. :cheers
