Cannondale Jekyll
The Cannondale Jekyll a completely different mountain biking experience really at home on the North face trail, perfectly balanced which Shane thought would not be possible due to its lefty shock. A superb ride all round, greatest asset being able to adjust the rear shock while downhilling with the flick of a thumb shifter, maximising downhill mountain biking also being able to lockout the rear shock to maximise cycling uphill.

Well thats all the Northern Munkies bike's, theres quite a bit of money between these Mountain bikes, as like cars they have been modified, the specs are slowly being added to each mountain bike.

Full Suspension mountain bikes

Mainly for downhill biking on rough terrains and cross country, arguably the best some riders prefer to feel more of the bikes reactions

Hardtail mountain bikes

Agile bikes for use in most mountain biking, mainly used in dowhill moutain biking, slalom and big air jumps also bikes such as chameleon are adaptable to cross country.

Rigid mountain bikes

Generally were mainly used before the introduction of full sus and hardtails, other mountain bike riders prefer full control and the full response of the bike.
