    Cool-blue Rhythm You say 29ers aren't nimble or flickable?

    Someone better tell Mike Montgomery they aren't That's the Banshee Prime FS 29er prototype he's back flipping

    Judging by the speed he was going at for that high of a jump, why wouldn't he or anyone be able to do a BF? On a 29'er that is.
    I give positive rep all around but then I get negative rep from all the clowns.

    They are starting to make the seatpost angle back which will put the rider farther back in the cockpit. But this was not the norm when 29ers were first being produced. The new breeds are much more flickable and nimble than the previous ones. Still a huge difference though in handling even with these changes.

    Been riding a steel 29er for 7 years. It's flickable. That sounds dirty.

    I've only done front flips off mine though.

    Are you trying to tell me that if i got a 29er that i would not be faster, smoother, more super human like, not thirsty from the kewl aid, corner better, be able to do back flips, look better to females with my BIG wheels? WTF man next thing you are going to do is tell me that Santa Clause is not real, and the tooth fairy is really the rock. I HATE this forum!!!!!

    other big things that are also flickable: monster trucks, jet fighters, fat college belly floppers hopped up on jello-shots during spring break, all F1 cars with their wings removed probably

    Montgomery flips things for a living. Pastrana could flick a 29er with no wheels..

    Brian Lopes could out ride me on a Walmart bike. That still doesn't make me want one.

    yes, but with the help of your MTBR comrades you could look better than him with your bike at the trailhead which honestly, is as important
