    What happened to 26″wheels?

    They were a ploy by bike manufacturers to milk consumers before moving onto proper size wheels

    Hi all. I’m looking for some help from the STW collective. Having been away from the MTB scene for a good few years I am now back in the market for a new bike. My last bike was an on one 456 and previously owned a Heckler. My work are offering the C2W scene through Halfords or Tredz.
    Just looking for the best specced hardtail bike around £750 to ride some trail centres and sherwood pines with my 11yr old boy. Im also confused by the 29ér / 650 scenario. What happened to 26″wheels? I assume 29ér is the way to go?
    Anyone have any recommendations of a hardtail for my price range (could stretch to £1000 if needed)

    Thanks

    Voodoo Bizango in Halfords is currently down to £500, I’d be tempted by that.

    Bizango is a riot. Spend the change on some deore brakes or a dropper.

    Thanks, have done a fair bit of googling and looked at reviews. Too much to choose from, but I quite fancy an orange clockwork and can get one for a grand, (over my initial budget though). Any thoughts on the clockwork and 29er (100mm travel) or 27.5 (120mm) travel)?
    I know spec isn’t as good as others but always been a fan of Orange bikes?
    Decisions, Decisions!!

    Although the Bizango looks a bargain
