So Ive found Im fastest and happiest on a 100mm 70 degree long stemmed F/S bike, no idea why, maybe it's because I spend a lot of the winter on a CX bike so im used to the handling. Im faster than on a 140mm f/s bike on natural trails lakes Wales at home on twisty wooded tracks and on trail centres Afan Keilder (it's in the classifieds if you fancy!) so it's all about me me me!!
Im intrested as to how a 29er has been designed to get the handling on par with a 26er but include the perceved benifits?
Does that make any sence?? Just intrested google gives me some stuff.
I must add I like the flowy swoopy bermy type riding...the last time I hi led to flat was at 3am after shorts at uni!!
