Have you thought about writing for MBR?
26er vs 29er debate settled....
I love the assumption that people who buy 29ers have been "suckered in by marketing"
29ers are better for most MTB applications - Fact .
I could pick so many theoretical holes in this theoretical concept but I can't be bothered as I've bored enough of you on previous threads in regards to this topic.
If I start another one, I'll be the replacement for "TJ + Helmet" jokes.
I ride with a friend who is about as quick as me. We have both wheel sizes, whoever is on the 29" has about 5% (about 10% on tech climbs) in the bag when on the big V's small wheels. If we run the same wheels there is nothing in it. The 26" is fun and lively and the 29" is stable and just eats trails.
The 26" is fun and lively and the 29" is stable and just eats trails.
So, as I ride mountain bikes for fun, I should ride a 26'er. If I want to exchange that fun for riding miles and miles I will get a 29er mountain bike.
I tend to agree with the copied statement BTW which is why my 29er Karate Monkey got converted to a CX bike for road and tow path type use.
I went out on my hack singlespeed last night in the mud, whilst dark. During that period it was the best bike in the world.
Note I haven't mentioned the wheel size, becuase it really doesn't matter.
Toasty, the only way YOU can settle this debate is to go and ride one!
He's got an Orange 5 (26er) and a Scandal 29er, but he could probably do with a couple of more bikes. You know, just to be sure...
