36" wheels are where it's at.
So 29ers are for those that can't bunny hop? Or figured out the basic weight shift?
42" wheels roll better.
no way man....
There for old people who can't ride real bikes. :dancing:
Only for those who can't bunny hop to begin with...
I hate to say it and i'm sure N8 has mad bike skills but on the trails all the 29" fanactics are always older dudes who have declining ability and just want a fast roller.
Nothing wrong with that.
Bigger is better right?
I heard Bender has a new bike that runs a 29" in the front and a 24" in the back neaky:
I just got one of these. Man, does this baby roll!!
There are also the rigid singlespeed 29" wool jersey wearing fanatics that have the "I'm better than you because I am different" attitudes. Their native territory seems to be western Pa.
The laws of 29 motion, the smoother you roll, the harder you fall...
Isn't this sort of like laying a 4 x 8 sheet of plywood over the rocky section and saying "I just cleaned the rocky section!"
Can't wait to see this years interbike FAD and all the salemen who try to convince you that your shop needs 30 of them.
Are you insinuating that the 29'er phenomenon might be a *FAD*?!?
No, that's what it's like when you ride a full suspension bike...
Not just the 29's but all the FADS over the past few years that EVERY company pushes as the next big thing, and all the mags for going along with it. This is one of the MANY reasons the bike industry is broke. Every year their marketing changes, and like Hollywood these days nobody has an original story... just a spin off of something that has been tried by another company. Then market it as if you started a revolution. Gary Fisher comes to mind here. Everything that guy puts his name on(not that he builds anything) is going to change the way we ride a bike.
Like that crazy DH fad from a few years ago...
yeah, that whole "let's rip down a DH trail as fast as we can" thing is pretty gosh-darn new, ain't it?
I know, man.
