I disagree. Full suspension bikes are significantly more setup intensive and I see setups that are bad, if not borderline dangerous all time. They’re way more maintenance intensive (air pressure) than my brother is going to do - we’re working on remembering tire pressure - and the trails he’s riding are smooth enough that there’s a limited comfort advantage.  This is terrain specific. He’s riding smooth blues. Note my kid, riding Shore-blue/purple trails has a suspension fork. I would agree that if he was starting out in the Shore and wanted to progress rapidly to black level trails that a full suspension bike would be faster to learn on. But I’m one of those rigid old thinkers that still believes you get a lot out of learning on a hardtail - brake control, climbing traction shifts, how to be smooth. ——— Going to let you off with a warning this time but let’s keep the Golf analogies for comments under Publisher-Pete articles please. F*ck golf. Hahaha
