Still the best way to hone your skills, we show you how to get the most out of a hard­tail this win­ter

They’re a load of fun and can teach you a lot of skills. What’s more, there’s some­thing re­fresh­ing about the back-to­ba­sics sim­plic­ity of a hard­tail, not to men­tion that they’re cheaper and a whole lot eas­ier to main­tain, es­pe­cially in the wet­ter months.
