What Makes a Great Full Suspension Mountain Bike

Posted on by Eastside in Blog | Comments Off on What Makes a Great Full Suspension Mountain Bike

There is simply no better way to make riding faster, safer and more fun than a quality full suspension mountain bike. Engineers have poured hours developing suspension that gobbles up bumps and maximizes traction. That said, how we talk about suspension is stuck in the 1990s; with almost every brand claiming they’re the only one to have solved suspensions’ achilles heel (whatever that is) with their new linkage or widget. This mismatch between marketing hype and engineering reality has led to a widespread misunderstanding of how suspension actually works. This post is our attempt to demystify suspension and, hopefully, give you enough information to make an informed purchase and unlock the benefits of your next full suspension mountain bike.
