    Lost in Translation: What 29'er tires don't work as well as their 26'er counterparts?

    Based on your experiences, what well regarded 26'er tire designs just don't translate well into a 29'er version? The 29'er tire doesn't necessarily have to be bad, it's just that it isn't nearly as good as the 26'er design.

    In my limited experience with the same tire at both sizes, I can honestly say the Kinda Nebraska are great in 26x2.1 and 2.35, and aren't even all that good in 29x2.2... It's like a totally different tire...
