Great article. I look forward to further updates!
It's so nice to see an article like this about the dreaded wheel size debate
where the standard comment is "29ers suck" or "29ers are gay" like is so
common on another popular bike forum, who's name shall not be mentioned. This
kind of unbiased information that isn't based on marketing, or someones
perceived idea that 27.5 and 29″ bikes even though they have never ridden one,
is very refreshing. Keep it coming!
I'm 6'4″, and recently bought a Trance X29 after going through a slew of 26″
trail and All Mountain bikes. For my size and riding style, it is the first
bike that I have actually felt fit me. To me, it feels right. Sure it's got
it's negative aspects, but so do the other wheel sizes. I think what it comes
down to is the right balance of pros vs. cons for each individual rider. I
would never tell someone they shouldn't ride a certain wheel size based on my
own opinions or experiences. My son also rides a 29er for trails, and hucks it
and jumps stuff that the nay-sayers will tell you it can't do, but he has a
skill set that allows him to ride any bike well.
That being said…I still love my 26″ DH bike, as it is the right tool for the
job. In the end, I still say its the rider…not the bike.
