    An independent 29+ forum?

    No idea which place to properly suggest this... But...

    I was wondering with the slow burgeoning of 29+ it would be nice to have an independent 29+ forum/parent folder.

    650b and 27.5 have their own forums so would anyone add their voice/approval/disapproval for this idea and perhaps set things in motion?

    I think it's a bit early for that as much as I like 29+. Numbers of 29+ riders are quite small.

    29+ has found a home in the fatbike forum and discussing it there makes sense to combine to fatty niche bike types.
    Safe riding,

    I think the 29+ might have legs long term. Saw a Chumba Ursa built with Knards in Leadville recently. I have to admit, I thought it looked fun as hell to ride. Would like to see that Niner 29+ too.

    I wish I had the money and time to buy and ride all the bikes I would like to buy/ride.

    +1 - if we actually get a decent selection of 29+ tires I think you are correct. That's the biggest hold up to things expanding any faster.
