If that isn't happening then the suspension is probably too stiff to do any good and is just excess weight. More expensive full suspension bikes are designed and/or use components to minimize the pedal bob.

    I highly recommend sticking to a hard tail (no rear suspension) unless you're looking to spend at least $1500 on a bike.
    Hardtail better then slender 1500 for sure thanks I try what said.
