    It does make me chuckle to myself that some of the haterz are now loverz.

    Four years ago road bike talk was taboo, now common as muck on STW. My guess is that in four years time 29’ers will be common as muck on here.

    I don’t get why people are so polarized….is it immaturity?

    I saw my first 29er in the wild yesterday- seems most of them only live in pictures on here, not on the trails.

    Here’s a wild 29er for you then.

    Every time you post a pic of that bike Hugor i think you’ve broken your saddle.

    What on earth is it, looks like a witches nose?

    My 5th 29er is sat in the lounge now looking pretty and i’m at the stage where i’ll have to sell the existing SS Inbred to make some room. I’ve been 29er since 2008 now and certainly won’t be going back.

    I read on 29inches that there is going to be a new push for 650b this year (and RS making some specific forks for them) so maybe they are trying to get rid of those little 26″ bikes altogether?

    That’s my Selle SMP.
    It looks ugly but stops the important bits going numb on epics.

    Blimey, at that price i’d rather my nuts went numb….. πŸ˜‰

    Funny how some view one as superseding the other, I think each wheel size has it’s place. Which is why I want one of each πŸ˜‰

    it’d catch on quicker on the correct forum πŸ˜‰

    everyone knows that 29gnar riders are self absorbed attention seeking tossbags anyway

    totally agree with this
    29ers for bridleways
    normal size wheels for proper mountainbiking

    It’s just bikes
    You sit on them,
    you pedal them,
    You ride them.
    Done.

    Another one spotted in the wild today….

    If i ever change my inbred (not likely for a couple of years) i might be tempted to give one a chance. Seems like they are no longer just for lanky types.

    …infact if i can find a cheap ss one second hand….

    Same size frame fit as a 26″?

    Big wheels, better grip. Got me up some slippery climbs today πŸ™‚

    thing is, 29ers probably aren’t as obvious as they used to be and harder to spot, since they worked out how to make them look like normal mountain bikes

    rusty trowel – that’s a 16″ Scandal and I had a 16″ Inbred, so expect the same size. I’m 5’7″ with a 31″ inside leg and I was worried I’d feel a bit dwarfed by it. In fact the changes I had to make for my second ride were to fit a slightly longer stem and move the saddle back a bit. I don’t think it looks weird in that size either.

    Cheers druidh, I’ve got a 16″ inbred and had a 16″ 456. 5’10” with long monkey arms and short arse 30″ inside leg. πŸ˜€

    29ers seem to be the future for xc trail riding.

    No. Seriously have you got a signed pictures or something?

    You must be a STW Expert that we could all learn a lot from. πŸ˜†

    Er when did they do that then?

    There again I bet it’s the same opinion as folk have who think riding a road bike and actually admitting to it, is cool.

    They look wrong. (29ers)

    End of.

    Actually, I reckon the 29er will be best for proper mountainbiking while the 26er will be relegated to trail centres.

    So let’s get this straight, you, by your own admission someone weird who rides a bike without gears in a world of plenty, is somehow suggesting er I have no clue.

    Nice try at trying to change the subject but as it goes i sometimes ride with gears and sometimes ride without.
    But I never have to get rescued by the coastguard or slag off a type of bike that my own company imports. πŸ˜†

    So you’re not going to recomend the 29er Bandit to me then?

    Shame as i have been looking at it as a possible replacement for my last remaining 26er.
    Oh well plenty of other people that will want my money. πŸ˜‰

    just think of the burden that will be lifted when you get rid of it and can stop pretending that you are a proper mountain biker

    maybe, maybe not.

    have you seen the ‘anyone got a kona honzo?’ thread that’s bumping along at the moment?

    you can see Mrtall’s honzo on it, it looks ace.

    You should try it. It’s quite liberating. πŸ™‚
