Yeah dolphin bikes. I know a guy that has one in his trunk too. They look fun enough. They're small.

I used to see a lot of them when I was up in Boston. People would come out of South Station with them, and ride to their offices.

I'm still riding a hardtail too. 29+ tires. Put my eggs in the basket that no one else did and now trek discontinued the bike and pretty much no one else has bikes with that tire size

i always thought it was weird companies put tires on mtbs that are wider than down hill bike tires, except for bikes that you ride on the beach

I don't know. I like the wider tires. Not the big fat 6" ones or whatever, but the 3" tires are supper grippy and for a big dude like me they help soak up some bumps since it's hardtail.

I'm also riding a hardtail. 27.5 High Volume tires (2.6" wide)
140mm fork.
It's pretty slack and likes to get rowdy.
I'll take it to the downhill park later in the season.

Love bike trials, (haven't ridden a trials bike in 20+ years).

Really wanting one of these, although, i'm probably just an old man wanting to feel young again!

Fast track to the hospital....

Trials is an awesome (fun) workout, all that hopping about without a saddle is great for the core.
