- so who's bought a new 26'er in the last month and proud of it :) ?
New to me, and it’s my ‘only’ mountain bike now, but I’m lovely my Lynskey Ti456. Funnily enough; not a single person that I ride with has a mountain bike with wheels larger than 26″. We do just fine and there’s plenty of new / recent investments there. Come to think of it, I can’t actually recall the last time I saw a 29er out in the hills? I think we’re going to be ok… 😐Posted 4 years agoheavy_ratMember
I’ve had my new giant anthem for 2 weeks now. Deliberated over a 29er and then a 650b but it was doing my head in what with all the choices. So stuck to what I know.
It feels great, love it so far. Its so fast I can’t imagine there are many quicker bikes for xc single track rooty stuff whatever the wheel sizePosted 4 years agoeyerideitMember
I bought some terribly unfashionable 26″ wheels, they weren’t new as I don’t think you can buy them in the shops anymore. You have to hunt them down by ringing shops like J R Hartley did to get a book about fly fishing.
Oh, I also bought some tyres of the same size, I might stock pilling them as they’re going to stop making them a week on Thursday then we’ll all be screwed according to some.
I’m converting a road bike to 26 inch, if that counts
Always against the flow eh? You’re like a spawning salmon.Posted 4 years agob45herMember
contrary to what the magazines claim and clown bike evangelists believe conventional sized wheels still outsell 29ers by a very large margin.

I’ve just finnished my enduro build last week
Its rapid downhill and climbs far better than It should
And all on 26 wheel.
Will also add one mate has just got a stumpy evo 26 wheel
Both of us could have waited till the 2014 range which are bound to change both these bikesPosted 4 years ago
But did not see the point
