Electronic Suspension on Road Bikes

Lately I’ve been thinking about getting a new mountain bike. I bought the one I have now in about 1995. It’s a hard tail and doesn’t have disc brakes. I’m kind of scared to ride it now, to be honest. I really want to try out a light, full suspension trail bike. I’m sure that once I do, I’ll be wondering why I waited so long to buy a new one.

It’s amazing how mountain bikes have evolved in the 20 years since I last bought one. Mountain bikers used to call roadies “techno weenies.” Not anymore – mountain bike technology has far outpaced road bike technology.

That’s starting to change though, and now roadies are starting to benefit from some pretty amazing new technology. For example, at this year’s Paris-Roubaix, Team Sky riders will be mounted on Pinarello Dogmas equipped with an adaptive suspension system. Here’s the low down in an article originally published in Cycling Weekly.

I'm a writer, social media marketer, and bike nut from Kelowna, BC, Canada. I got serious about cycling in about 1980 and have a special fondness for bikes made during that decade. I enjoy researching and writing about all bikes, but especially those made by small builders, many of whom only built bikes for a few years.

    I have a 9 speed , Shimano, Forte sl1, Size 52 and wondering what it’s worth? Bought it used, 10 years ago and it’s been great. I have since upgraded and a friend would like to buy it…. not sure what a fair price would be?
