what's with these 29" wheeled bikes then?
Another interesting and educational thread ruined by idiots. Ok so I may have photo shopped a beach where my soho market patch is and I didn’t actually get any money from the dwarfs for the belts as they over powered me with sharpened spoons but I am serious about the handling of a 29er. My necklace/bongo/trinket box stall handles equally as well as when it was a standard 29er. In fact it was rather good down Dr Johns the other weekend. I did lose a very fetching sea shell and mother of pearl pair of earnings though if anyone sees them.Posted 6 years agohandymanMember
I have aquired a jamis dragon race 853 tubing 29er and will be taking it out for its maiden ride fri on my regular route that i have done on my 26er hardtail and fs so am looking forward to comparing, it does have rather nice american classic tubeless wheels on and they feel nice and firmPosted 6 years ago
I’M 4 foot 7 and ride a medium swift, top tube is a little close to my jewels but wouldnt go back to a kids bike for love or money.Posted 6 years ago
but i do wish they would make a 29er that can steer through singletrack as i when i try and turn the bars i just keep going in a straight line
and I’d certainly never consider buying a well designed proto frame off tazzymtb. Ever.
It’s a good job to. I’ve heard that not only does he maybe have carnal relations with the devil, but he may actually have just ordered a new frame so that mythical proto beast will be appearing possibly on the classifieds in a 7-10 days for a very reasonable price. (just to get the hideous thing out of my site god knows who’d want a clown bike with bendy seat tubes and climbing ability of a monkey on PCP) 😉Posted 6 years agoIdleJonSubscriber

bob? what the blinkin flip is that? Are they all named after the singer from the cure, that would explain why 29ers are so slow, they can only go at mopey goth pace
Funniest thing I’ve read for a while.
I must name my bikes after random singers from bands……Posted 6 years agocharlie the bikemongerSubscriber
Bigger may not always be better
But bigger is always bigger
And that is better.
Seriously. They are great. If small wheels are better why don’t we all ride bmx wheels. One wheel size fits all is or rather was a manufacturing convenience. But now we have half a dozen bottom bracket variations we are cool with two wheel sizes*
* 650b might be one size too far.Posted 6 years ago
