    I’m sticking to 26ers but more because of the fact that I’m worried I’ll end up buying loads more kit if I try a 29er than from some aesthetic revulsion.

    Thank you for bringing that up and you are totally entitled to your opinion.
    I don’t like tomatoes. Anyone else not like something?

    However I realise I’m in the minority on here. I’m sticking to 26ers

    Oh I wouldn’t sat that. We’re the silent majority. Well we were. I still am. But you’ve jettisoned your ‘silent’ bit by saying they’re shit.

    The far-from-silent minority will now launch into you. Good luck!

    Oh… I can’t stand hummus. Its like wallpaper paste

    I spy a troll! Fair one though, they’re not for everyone. I’m undecided but will probably stay with a 26″ for the same reason as wwaswas.

    I don’t like fish, seafood or lamb and I’m allergic to fresh ginger.

    zippykona, is it the look of tomatoes or the taste ?
    Maybe if you got someone to put them in a sandwich for you so you could eat them without looking at them, you’d be OK.
    Likewise, Manitou, if it’s just the looks of 29ers you don’t like, you could keep a sheet over it until you get on, then wear some sort of blinkers so you can’t look down while riding.

    zippykona – is it just raw tomato? Do you like them cooked, say in a spaghetti bolognaise? How about lasagna?

    I can handle a tomato sauce that doesn’t taste of tomato!
    My grievance is with pre packed food. Every sandwich has tomato in it. So a cheese and pickle sandwich is really cheese,pickle and tomato.

    I’ve always thought 29ers aren’t for me. Things like this may change my mind: https://vimeo.com/40481715

    I could take or leave 29ers, although I do like the look of the new Santa Cruz FS ones !

    …. as for ferkin Coconut, you can take that crap and shove it in a deep hole somewhere. Just wrong in soooooo many ways !

    He’s right though, some do look absolutely wrong, as do any FS bike with those awful bent top tubes

    Ahh, now I think you’re confusing ‘Cheese and Pickle’ for ‘Ploughmans’.

    I also wish that people would accept that when someone discovers a new ‘food’, there is a possibility they could get it wrong. See sprouts for an example of this….

    Sprouts are one of the best bits of Xmas!

    What’s really wrong is brown sauce….

    I bloody love sprouts. And brown sauce too actually, although obviously not together. Although now you mention it…

    Pickled Octopus – one of the rare foodstuffs I gave up on. And I only like proper stonebake pizzas – 26/29″, I don’t mind.

    Well… Ive had a look at a couple of 29ers and I’m sorry they just look wrong. They just look like a slightly more attractive hybrid.

    I wouldnt buy a shirt, jacket, top, trouser,car,or indeed bike I didnt like the look of.

    Ideally you want to be on the lookout for a pair, however great the trouser looks it’ll be socially awkward without a partner.

    Where do you get such wondrously sized posh cheese on toast?

    It’s all relative to what you’re used to. I now find 26ers look ‘wrong’ because the wheels are too small and the frame is too big for them.

    Sprout are devils food, you woudln’t eat a whole cabbage and sprouts are just shruken cabbages!!

    I can’t speak about 29ers being ugly I ride an Orange five* and a GT hardtail!!

    *old style staight top tube though.

    I quite like sprouts.

    Had a bite of a seafood pizza once and just about vommed. So I definitely wouldnt want a 29″ seafood special.

    is that a Brompton..?

    Small ones look wrong to me. Big blokes on them seem OK, just as big blokes on 26’ers look wrong.

    Its all asthetics and scale.

    I tired one and felt the hype was just hype. But thats not surprising with marketing.

    I have a 29er Hardtail (swift) which Ilike th elook off, but just happened to look at a Norco full sus 29er and a Specialized Camber 29er in Evans…

    thought they both looked horrible…
