Tech Bench / Re: The 29er Thread
« on: June 30, 2010, 09:14:36 AM »
I think SYT is trying to say the difference is like trying to roll a round ball and a square ball.

I never thought I would go the 29er route. I am only 5'8 and figured 650b would be a better option. (it still might be) But some things happened that I ended up with a Fuji geared 29er.

I have found that I actually like the way the bigger wheels ride and now I want to replace my 1x1 with a 29er.

The only drawback that I have noticed is late in a huge climb if it gets real steep it seems to be more sluggish to get over the top.
Some say handling and technical stuff is not as good, but I have not found that to be the case. My third ride on my 29er was in Pisgah for PMBAR. This was the first time I did not have a FS bike down there and I don't know that I would have done any better with either bike. I was very happy with how I felt riding that harder stuff.

The biggest problem I have is switching back to a 26" wheel and then trying to ride a wheelie.
