    Do you reckon a narrow enough 29er tyre could make the trails come alive?

    The 27.5 is nearer than the 29, so you have to allow for perspective ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Its got to be said, my mates norco made more sense when he put the massive Hans dampfs on it. But it didn’t make as much difference as that PIC suggests.

    The 29er is nearly a whole bike length ahead of the 27.5, you wouldn’t need a photo finish to sort that one out, it’s clearly a lot faster.

    the difference in the wheel sizes is more pronounced on the further away shot. Up close seems to be distorting it a bit.

    No worries, it just hasn’t been photoshopped very well. The second one with the yellow bike (oops!) is a bit better, but the head is way too large for that body (which is Gee Atherton’s, I believe).

    Ahhh but did the trail develop a pulse and start breathing when you got on the 27.5er?

    There is definitely not a lot in it when you put a much smaller tyre (don’t believe the numbers) on the 29″ and place it behind the 650b bike. Funny enough that headtube on the 650b bike looks like it would be too big for the 29″ too ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Massive tyre closer to the lense appears almost as big as slightly smaller one further away shocker

    The blue heckler is mine, ridden exclusively 26″ until today. All I have to say is that wheel size doesn’t matter one bit, but the smile on my face that just won’t go away after today’s ride does!

    I have one bike with a 26″ 2.4 high roller and another with a 650B 2.1 racing ralph. The difference in circumference for these is also negligible. The only difference I can see at the moment is that the racing ralphs will probably end in a slippery death for me due to the volume of mud around the Kent trails

    I struggle to see why the same argument (which is inherently flawed) is made again and again. Try putting the same tyre of the same width on a (more or less) identical rim and then make your point.

    Say for example a 26, 27.5, and 29 Schwalbe Racing Ralph on ZTR Crests at 30psi – then feel free to spout as much nonsense as you like.

    Comparing different tyres on rims with different profiles is just stupid.

    My 26″ x 2.35 hans dampf measures 27.25 inches on a stans crest, can i join the 27.5″ trail comes alive debate or does my lack of .25 of an inch mean i’m cast aside with all the other wannabe 26″ riding freaks?.

    Premier Icon schmiken

    Also, forgot to mention this, all the tyres should be the same width.

    Can we actually get the measurements of a 26, 27.5 and 29 x 2.25 on Crests at 30 psi? Then we can finally put this stupid debate to bed.

    My Bonty TLR 29-4 on a 19mm internal width rim measures 29.5″. Can I join the almost Krampus club?
