    Two words that have no meaning whatever:

    "nimble"

    "flickable"

    And that photo proves nothing except Mike Montgomery's flip-ability.

    IMO, people use the word "flickable" to sound knowledgeable or experienced. It means nothing. It's like saying in a job interview, "I'm a people person." Blah blah blah.

    At least you didn't say "plush," another word with Zero Meaning.

    I have a 26 inch hardtail, a 26 inch 5.5 inch travel bike, and a 29er hardtail. I like my 29er for very specific things, jumping isn't one of them.

    Hehe! Ash, you are a funny guy. "Nimble" and "flickable" have meaning, just like "plush" and "people person". Maybe people person has no meaning to you, because you aren't one.

    It's got me excited to see what they're gonna pull out of the hat when it's time to re-design or replace the rune. The links look rock solid and I'm really feeling the beefy CNC machines detachable rear drops outs.

    A backflip requires the opposite of flickable. you're moving the bike in line with the wheels, and not countering any of the forward, upright momentum. I would be much more impressed to see a smooth 360 on a 29er over a jump. But I do agree that the wheel size has little to nothing to do with the flickability of a bike. I'm just saying those photos aren't the best examples to prove it with...

    It will be interesting to compare the prime and rune back-to-back. I love my Rune, but I expect the prime (with a proper fork) will spank it in most conditions.

    Trial and error.

    Now, Urban Dictionary is sure a wonderful resource. But "flickable" is still something that is discussed on a short bus ride. Along with "climb like a goat" and "gnarly".

    Wouldn't "Ain't" be an example as a word that had no meaning, then and yet does today? I hope you teachers don't crack a paddle across my bruuuuutiful cheeks for that.
    I give positive rep all around but then I get negative rep from all the clowns.

    I guess it is nothting new but it makes me chuckle, in just about every forum there are scared little people hiding in a cave hoping hold onto the only thing they know... there all bikes who give a flying $#& what marketing says about this one or that one? I've got 26" 29" both in full rigid, SS Hardtails, full suspension.... I like them all though may personally prefer one or the other on certain trails or certain days.... Good thing there is a variety to choose from otherwise there would be nothing to hate-
    I Just wish I could ride more!

    That isnt a slopestyle bike is it??

    dont really see the point of using a 29in rim on slopestyle bikes. I've got nothing against them, and dont doubt theyre gettin pretty damn nimble with the r&d these things have got behind them, but not for that kind of stuff lol.

    No problem if its a trail bike (which it seems to be), matter of fact if id to buy a decent xc bike id get a 29er probably..

    I think you are too blinded by your own self importance to realise how much of a clown you are.
