29ers, I have the definitive answer…

Me too, before this degenerates into puerile wheel size hatred. I have owned a Soul for over 6 yrs and have only bettered this with, a Solaris. It didn’t happen overnight, more like 12-14 months of which 10 months were rigid on the Solaris until I decided to put a pair of Rebas on. Granted they aren’t everybody’s cup of tea but for me at 6’4 it’s the first bike I have owned that doesn’t look like a gate. My soul has not been ridden for months since putting sus forks on the Solaris. I am constantly surprising myself at what I can do on it, so used to riding a 26er for over 20 odd years you get kind of get stuck in your ways/opinions on what is possible or not.Posted 4 years agowarns74Member

You do have to watch a few minutes of some bloke riding round some average trails, but the last 10seconds of this film has *the* answer you have all been waiting for.
Matt,… didn’t I own your ass around the chase (not strictly true, but adds value) on my 29er, and you were so intrigued you had a little go…?
….you know, you fell off on your little wheeled bike….remember…. 😀

No, I am *the* Matt.Posted 4 years ago
But not *your* Matt.
By chase do you mean Cannock? If so, no. Not ridden at Cannock.
The only 29er I rode was my Niner in 2008. It was ace. The tyres were crap. The reba’s were noodly. But it still was ACE fun and fast…
