Right on, I had a '93 MB-2. Fantastic bike until it was stolen. :| Why not keep yours a rigid?

Just looking to change up and take on tougher trails. How does the MB hold up? Done any riding yet?

It rides very nicely, but it doesn't see anything gnarly anymore since the headtube is ovalized. Heavy suspension forks are pretty hard on 1" headtubes.
