    Trying to get into the lucrative aging baby boomer market. Look for a Turner branded Rascal in '07. ;)

    Do you suppose that just because N8 is ga-ga over 29'ers that they'll become mainstream?

    Or do you suppose they'll remain niche products as they've been for the last decade?

    Wish it were a 5-6"+... Still good to see it, however.

    this guy's statement makes a lot of sense. :rolleyes:

    if that's the case, DH bikes should have 36" wheels, right?

    I heard somewhere that you fall harder on a 29"
    sound like they were invented to control the elderly population :sneaky:

    man, you should read that whole thread N8 posted. that Cloxxi guy has no idea about DH...at least SprungShoulders made some good posts and clarified a lot for some of his dubious thinking.

    In the 90's, mountain biking had a lot of niches: funky suspension designs, freaky colors, and just some odd stuff.

    29'ers remind me of that, and while most of the niche stuff have disappeared in favor a two party system (Shimano or SRAM), I would like to see 29ers continue.

    You forgot to mention 29'ers. ;)

    They *are* that, and have been for over a decade.

    29'ers are like the Recumbants of MTB. They have their niche and should hang around. But when people keep telling me they are better I find I don't have any of the problems they are supposed to solve.
