    Get A Load Of This Clown ...

    While speaking about 29" bikes cleaning a section of trail ...

    Some other quotes.

    Face it, you're a sucker.

    Well you get the picture and that is just the tip of the iceberg. And the kicker? At their own admission this clown has never ridden a 29 or even 27.5 bike .... never.

    They have been going off for literally months in both the General and Passion forums about how superior 26" wheels are. I for one am sick of reading this BS (though I admit to having a morbid fascination with idiocy) and I don't have anything against 26" wheels. Any comments for this loser? Their favorite active thread right now ...

    The Good Ol' 26er?

    So stop reading? Are you sick of it or is it your favorite thread?

    For me 29ers were a game changer. For many reasons I would never look back to 26ers and for my riding ability and needs, I don't have a use for 27.5. But I don't hate on 26 riders.

    I'm sold on my 29er, superfly feels like second skin while riding. But I don't judge the 26er fans, if the bike works for them and they enjoy the ride, who am I to criticize?

    what'a'tool

    ----
    I am going to 27.5 and dumping my 26 and 29'ers not because any bike is better than the other...I know damn well ALL my bikes are equally fast in all conditions. I steer them a bit differently, and pick up the front and roll over things a bit different between the two, but no way is one 'better' than the other.

    I am only dumping them because I suddenly realized I have too many bikes and am wiping the slate clean and getting all new 2015 bikes and 27.5 just happens to be a size I am not familiar with, so I want to go and set all my new PR's and retake a few KOM's on it. can do it on a 26 can do it on a 29 ...now will go do it on a 27.5

    the internet is chock full of *****...I am one myself sometimes

    I have both! I love my Rize4-26er. Been riding it for years and I was able to keep up and play anywhere the 9ers where.
    That being said I recently had the opportunity to acquire a Jet RDO. I love it. I don't think twice about which bike I am going to ride each day. But every once and awhile its fun to get out on the little wheels and play.

    Fact is they are completely different bikes. I think I can do things with one that I cant with the other. Thats kinda why I like them both. They both have things that they do great.
    Granted Im referring to two fairly nice bikes and many may not have opportunities to play on such machines.

    My opinion- anyone that is whiling to bash one type of a bike or another is just down right IGNORANT. (and probably cant ride for $#!+)

    (Definition-ignorant: lacking knowledge or awareness in general; uneducated or unsophisticated)

    Just saying....

    What if you prefer one over the other?....I don't see that as bashing.

    We all prefer something. However, having preference does not determine that choice to be better than the next.

    I once heard; Opinions are like...... (you can fill in the blank with your choice of words)
    everyone has one.

    Yea for sure some are that way.

    Most could care less what people ride. I ride with guys on 26", 27.5" and 29" wheels....we all have fun.

    I couldn't read anymore. It was way too much BS for me. I rode a 26" for years and loved it. I actually still have it, but no pedals for it currently. I bought my F29 and was like where was this technology years ago? To me it was a night and day difference and I was enjoying my riding even more with the 29r. I am still planning on getting a set of pedals for the 26" so I can take it out on the trail again just to see if I am missing anything. I'm thinking I'm not, but I still want to. Reason I don't want to get rid of it is because one the frame is still perfect and another is the company no longer make mountain bikes. Won't mean much to others, but I still want to hang on to it. It is a Kestrel CSX I bought as a frame and was my first custom built bike as far as mix and match components.

    You have to wonder just who he is trying to convince. That crap does get very tiresome, very quickly though. My guess is it's just another maladjusted teenybopper.

    Don't like = don't read. Cardinal rule of the internet. (Along with "don't read the YouTube comments.")

    Too bad we can't lock this dork up with DC, and put a web cam in the rubber room. I'd pay to see that.
