    And then Kulhavy won on a 29er...

    J/K, that's hilarious. For what it's worth, I'm not fundamentally opposed to the existence of any wheel size.

    wat?

    Folks who ride something other that 26" wheels engage in homosexual behavior?

    Are you sure?

    Many of my gay friends don't even ride bikes. How does that square with your "argument "?

    Sadly that's just homophobic BS and has no place on MTBR.

    If you replaced "Gay" with the "N" word to imply 29ers sucked would it be cool?
    Safe riding,

    Agreed, who still thinks making fun of things by calling them "gay" is still funny or acceptable? It's juvenile at best and hateful at worst so why go there?

    The truth about wheel size!

    Who actually means anything against homosexuals when they call some thing gay? It's nothing like the n word anymore. There are so many words that lose there power over time and gay is one of them. It's like calling someone lame, do crippled people or f'd up horses get upset.

    relax, take a pill, a deep breath and quit acting gay. jk its a joke...gay is happy! If anyone should be offended its me. My partner and I laugh at how people get so uptight about people saying gay. It doesnt offend us one bit.

    Whatever happened to sticks and stones.... but words will never hurt me?

    IMO, while it's true some words are loaded it takes one to say it and another to interpret it in a negative and/or personal way and get all huffy about it. Oh crap, I used a naughty word that implies inhaling paint to get high, or maybe it's that crappy bike manufacturer or maybe it's about an action that includes quick breathing and puffed chest. Darnit, I used the word puff which implies many things about a dragon that plays with kids or a kid's TV show or something illegal. I must just be pissing off this whole forum. Urrggh, gma told me never to use that swear word.

    I think there are those who take that word and own it, like some other words I won't mention. In addition to that PC is BS. Adjectives don't hurt people, people's opinion of themselves and what they believe other people think of themselves does more harm than adjectives. That and guys/gals with sticks and stones, but only if they're swinging or tossing.

    Whatever your orientation in life, whatever your wheel size, hardtail or FS, paved or roots, just whatever.

    650b means American brands are finally designing frames with enough clearance for UK winters and 26in wheels.

    That would be really bad. English. "Gay" in the OP usage is an adjective, modifying the term "29ers". The N word is a noun. As we know, nouns cannot modify other nouns, so to say "29ers are [N word]" would be nonsensical -- it would be like saying "29ers are spaceships". No, they are not.

    The only way you could make that work would be to instead use the adverb "niggardly", which means "in a stingy or meager manner," and is often mistakenly believed to have a common origin with the N word. And in that case, he would also have to modify his sign to say that "riding 29ers is niggardly", which of course is inaccurate because in general 29ers are more expensive than other wheel size options, unless of course the sign wielder was referring to the conundrum of bicycle commuters escaping road taxes or other forms of expense that non-29er riders are subject to. However, in that case, the sign would be out of context, because it is clearly being displayed at a race, in which 29er riders are not subject to reduced entry fees or sanctioning body membership fees.

    On the other hand, stating that "29ers are retarded" may be true, in that their slower acceleration as compared with smaller wheels is a well-documented fact.

    EDIT: *sheesh* -- It just occurred to me. You probably meant "Normal". In that case, I would say yes, riding 29ers is normal and should be respected as a lifestyle choice.

    Agreed,lycra makes no sense for Mtb,it was all that was available at the time of Mtb's beginning then of course the roadie crowd dumbed down and influenced XC to the point of sterility.

    The truth about wheel size!

    I'm watching the Daily Show. Jon
    Stewart did a riff on Lindsay Graham's effeminacy with a not subtle implication that he is a closet queen, and not in a good way.

    I'm not sure that even the Daily Show gets a pass for homophobic satiric humor. We'll see if Stewart catches flack for it.
    Old enough to know better. And old enough not to care. Best age to be.
