#!markdown When I arrived here the first time in 96, "freeride" was a hard tail spec'd with the group below lx, and a solid fork. The suspension fork was only just out. The freeride I remember was typified by the hard tail, in particular the Cove Hummer with Marz b1…..and guys who climbed the mountain then descended it. I still see those 40 year olds doing it Saturday mornings. I was taken on an epic ride through the big eye in 98. A six hour epic shore tour by two of the old school guys. To me, that was freeride….a bunch of suspended hard tails on ladders and rocks deep in the forest. Pushing your rig up the mountain because it weighs as much as John Candy, is not freeride……
