Fun Bad Idea 1: Suspension Everything

I'm posting this to see if this has already been done.

I was thinking about building a goofy MTB with suspension everything. By that I mean...


- Front Suspension
- Rear Suspension
- Softride stem
- Thudbuster Seatpost (or equivalent)
- Sprung saddle
- Big cushy tires

- missing anything?

I wouldn't intend to ride it much and realize there would be concerns about handling. And it would be heavy and expensive to get a Softride for a silly project....

But it would be cool to see how it feels and handles

"But it would be cool . . . "

I guess that would be one word for it.
