I was hardtail-curious, so ditched the FS and went all-in. I don't regret it at all. It's theoretically less-capable... but all the terrain I enjoy riding is still very doable. I guess it's a bit rougher? I guess I can't go as fast? I'm not a speed demon and I tend to prefer slower-speed tech to all-out shredding and for that purpose, I don't feel like I'm missing out by not having a rear shock.  Big wheels, long-wheelbase and good geo contribute more to a bikes usability than it's suspension configuration, IMO.  I'm not going to be heading to WBP anytime soon but for typical North Shore/Lower Mainland riding, it's great.
