Hardtail Heroes

Ewen Turner emerges from a wet winter of hardtail shredding, sits by the fire and reminisces about back in the day when bikes were bikes, had 400 gears, weighed as much as a cow, and never broke. He gets together with some of the big players in the hardtail world and asks if there is still room for hardtails in the modern, carbon blinged-up world of mountain biking.
