The rigid mountain bike has a frame with a rigid fork and fixed rear, with no suspension. It is important to note, however, that there are still a number of benefits associated with the use of fully rigid classic mountain bikes: Lower cost, improved feedback and fewer breakdowns and repairs. Hard tail bikes work with front suspension fork and no rear suspension, while Soft tail mountain bikes work with a frame with small amount of rear suspension, activated by flex of the frame instead of pivots. Dual mountain bikes or full suspension bikes use a front suspension fork and rear suspension with a rear shock and linkage that allow the rear wheel to move on pivots. This last one is the most common among the practitioners of mountain biking.
