Why the push to sell a 29er?
So I went to my LBS to discuss buying something "all mountain" in the next few months. I already have a 29er hardtail so I was looking for something in a different direction. The bikes I am considering were a Remedy, Heckler, or Reign. The LBS was trying to steer me more toward a Rumblefish or Trance. I know the benefits of a 29er when it comes to clearing but what I was looking for was something for the tight trails with a lot of switchbacks. Both are good bikes in their own right but why push them over the 26 inch wheels? In the end the LBS will of course sell me whatever I choose and take care of me but it just seems odd to go that direction.
