where's captainflash with his groundhog day gif ?
I still dont understand it.
Bigger wheels = go faster for less turns
Hehe.. all that does is increase the effective gear ratio.. which you'll adjust back to what you want via the shifter or choosing sprockets anyway...
29ers definitely roll better.
26ers may handle better in twisty stuff - I suspect they would but I have yet to ride a 29er on windy singletrack to compare.
oh for the love of god can't we put this debate to bed it's just BIKES so get on with it- ride it,get it dirty,clean it,fix it,repeat for as long as you can manage but stop fu*king going on about wheel sizes
Really folk do get in a froth over bikes and bike choices.
Pick one for you and let other folk do the same
fkmesideways I actually agree with junky on something *looks out of window, nope no pigs flying*
must be true then, just ride what YOU like and a stop fretting over what others do.
I don't have a problem with the size of his wheels but I do hope he hasn't jumped on the marketing bandwagon that is bars over 700mm wide.
They just look wrong.
Well he's been out today on it and says its faster than his old 'too big bike'. I am out with him in the morning, so will see what its like. The handlebars are so wide, we couldnt get it through the door. We have moved the grips in about 2 inches so far on each end, ready to cut it off. He reckons the bars are still 2 inches further forward compared to his old bike. We'll see in the morning and report back.
