What are full suspension mountain bikes
A full suspension (FS) mountain bike is like a hardtail bike but has a different frame that is made from two pieces (The Front Triangle & The Rear Triangle) these are then joined by pivots on the bike frame. This design allows the FS bike to move independently and allows for a softer ride as the movement is controlled by the suspension shock absorbers.
