Tut tut tut…..a 26er………someone hasn’t been paying attention!
I jest somewhat having in the past year bought myself, my wife, plus my son and daughter new mtb’s and all are 26ers. I don’t care either!
It’s all bikes and bikes are cool. Enjoy. I look forward to the pics.Posted 4 years agocoolhandlukeSubscriber
26″ bikes will be like vinyl and CD years back.
The big names and crap bikes will die or move on to the new fangled tech that’s supposedly better.
The small dedicated and really good brands will continue to supply 26″ stuff but it will become quite exotic, expensive but way way better.
We’re currently in the transition period. When it settles in a few years you may find the 650b section being compared to Minidisc, ie it was actually quite good but nobody bothered much with it.
I like my 26″ wheels!Posted 4 years agobigyinnMember
Only if you need to have the latest toys do 29″ and now 650b make sense. Otherwise Im quite happy sticking with my old fashioned 26″ wheels thanks. Besides im not prepared to bin my prefectly working and functioning bikes because fashion says so.
Now that PACE is lovely, but get rid of the mini pump please!Posted 4 years agonedrapierSubscriber
Feeling the 26er love!
I rode this round Ashton Court a number of times at the weekend and bloody loved it. Gear was lovely for the odd stomp between berms, light, flickable, and direct. Some of the rocky steps got a bit boring with a dehydration headache in the middle of the afternoon, though!
Of course, it didn’t look anywhere near as good as this at the time. It had a pump on it. And a bottle, and a tube taped to the seatpost. And to really ruin the look, some gurning baldy monkeying around on top of it.Posted 4 years ago
