    Twenty-six minus three =

    Fun!

    I've been riding my 29er a lot lately, but it needs a bit of adjustment, so rather than mess with adjustments tonight I just grabbed my 26er (an Enduro) instead and went for a ride.

    And it was good, very good. I had a blast. I'm reminded that all bikes have their good points. So long as there's pedals and the wheels go round and round, I'm happy. Brakes are optional .

    I was excited to read about some crazy custom little 23" wheels.

    Oh well.

    23" is definately going to be better than anything we ride today.

    - TopFuel accelleration.
    - Chased Rabbit manouvrability
    - No toe overlap even for 4-foot tall riders
    - Strong yet light wheels, saving nearly a pound over 26".
    - Cheap shipping, easy storage and travelling
    - Short chainstays will allow effortless front wheel lofting and drop-ins.

    Makes you wonder why no-one ever make such XC bikes in large quantities. Even 24" would be a great improvement. And the UCI allows it, so what's taking everyone?

    Yep! My bad. Guess I was still too pumped up from the ride to do math correctly.

    Thankfully, I do not have any 23-inch bikes .

    Am headed out again today after lunch. Then this evening I'm adjusting my 29er suspension again. I'd reduced the air pressure for my son, and now i've got to dial it back in again. THis time I'm writing down the numbers.
