If you mean simple bike as in a hardtail, most likely not. On some bikes, it would e possible, but it adds more weight and looks pretty ghetto.
What is suspension fork hardtail?
A full-suspension mountain bike features both a suspension fork up front and a rear shock, whereas a hardtail bike has only a suspension fork. On the other hand, choose a hardtail bike if you’re on a tighter budget and/or plan to spend most of your time on smoother trails.
What’s better hardtail or full suspension?
A hardtail gives you a much more direct experience of the trail than a full suspension bike. Riding a hardtail encourages you to pick your lines more carefully and to be more active on the bike, using your legs to absorb the bumps on the trail.
How can I make my hardtail more comfortable?
If your rims can take it, the easiest way to make your hardtail ride with more confidence is to chuck big, fat DH tread tyres on it, and go as wide as you can.
Can you fit downhill forks on a hardtail?
you can always do downhill on a hardtail you dont have to pull the speed you normally would on a dh bike. but like another member said on the singletrack you glide away. and about frames breaking you dont really change the head angle that much with a 6 inch fork.
Can you jump with a hardtail?
Yes, hardtail mountain bikes can handle jumps and drops whenever you are out on a trail. Specifically speaking, hardtail mountain bikes may lack a rear suspension but these bikes come with a frame that’s very sturdy and is much sturdier than most other mountain bikes.
Is 150mm travel too much for a hardtail?
And as you would expect, it needs a fork with more travel and stiffness than those 100-120mm options. Too much travel can also dull the feedback of your trail bike. We recommend that a trail fork ideally have 34mm stanchions, at 130-140mm, for a 29er – possibly, up to 150mm, for the smaller 27.5in wheel size.
