Long time reader first time poster.
I have only been mountain biking for 11 months on a hardtail but with some spare cash have decided to treat myself to a full suss.
I have been told that 140mm should be enough for this country and what I mainly do being trail centres of blue and red grade plus the odd bit of geurilla riding in South Wales.
Having been to the LBS and advised I was after a 140mm travel bike they suggested that I may be better off with a 120mm bike. This was on the premise that I was quite light (for the record I'm a tad over 10 stone and 5ft 7.5in.
Is there any credibility to this and should I go for the 120 or 150? I want a bike that I can have fun doing everything I do rather than just getting through some stuff I will come across.
