I can't believe a shop would neglect a large segment so much. Not every body buys a new bike every season. Still lots of 26" bikes on the trails.
Pretty much forcing people to buy online.
I love shops that give the big 'fuck you' to the customers that just dropped thousands of dollars on a 26er that that kid probably sold to them last year or the year before! I'm a DINK (dual income no kids), and Jesus man I'm not even close to replacing my carbon bike with another carbon bike that has a slightly larger wheel. It's illogical.
BTW, NSBS has the biggest selection of Maxxis rubber in all sizes I've seem
The 26x2.4 DHR2 EXO has just come out in Supertacky. I think the Luddites will be fine for a few more years, judging by how fast companies like Maxxis change ;-)
