    Clear, concise, to the point, and with a Cheryl Cole reference. What’s not to like?

    erm cheryl cole?

    Homo 😀

    I like mountain biking to be fun, can we have reviews based on grin factor rather than if i get to the pub 4 seconds quicker than someone else.

    I stand corrected, that’ll teach me to skim read.

    to be fair the article was a bit confusing- jonsey had already made up his mind before he wrote it imho so he kind of ignored the actual results!

    Yea, I read it as 29ers are awesome, skimmed through the numbers noteing that they were ~5 seconds different and left it at that. Does seem odd considdering that everyone raves about the rumblefish that it came out slower.

    Agreed. But the article did get me thinking about 29ers and I want to get a test ride of one. Where as before I might not have bothered, thinking they’re just for bearded weirdies.

    Still getting the idea that some people would actually set out to have a bike with certain sized wheels, and/or choose a bike based on the size of the wheels… Is that actually the case!? 😯

    Well I rode a 29er for the first time today and all I can say is believe the hype. 🙂

    Why not? If I was going out shopping for a new XC bike tommorow (Ok, more likely next spring) I’d ignore anything 26″, just like I’d ignore the 20″ and 24″ bikes.

    since when has any one, ever, based a properly informed opinion on what MBUK says?

    I bought a Marin East Peak in 1998 partly based on their group test, that turned out to be a good decision. It was also the last time I bought a bike magazine. I still have it somewhere.
