Long time reader first time participant here.  Loving this thread and the beautiful bikes here- that Passila is stunning. 

Here is my current set up:

Thank you! After 10 years of riding full sussers I also ride only a hardtail now. Finland isn’t exactly known for gnarly trails like BC, but I’ve noticed that a hardtail with proper design can handle a lot more than I can give her. And the ride feel gives you back so much more than a frame with suspension, in my opinion

I know what you mean.  Modern hardtails are so capable compared to just 5 or so years ago.  It has made my local trails interesting and fun again.

Re: NSMB - 2019 - Hardtail Thread

Also, bit of background story; I rode bmx until the age of 20ish and got into mtb at 22. Had numerous custom built hardtail bikes over the years plus several suspension bikes (used to do a bit of DH racing back in the day) but at the age of 42 (and with kids) this is now my only bike.

My trails are tame and smooth plus a small bike park and I can't see myself wanting any more bike than this for the foreseeable future.  It does everything.  The frame is in for a paint job at the moment so fresh pics to follow in a few weeks.
