    I think 26" will still be found on XC and AM bikes. Mostly on the children's and small women's models, though. And 650b will be found on DH bikes, and when someone wins a WC race on one, they'll take off.

    But to answer the OP's question, I'm not really sure why I'm so uptight. But riding this hel





    This bike is so much fun that I recently rewarded it with a dropper post cable remote, 2x chainrings, SRAM Type 2 rear derailleur, and carbon DH bars.

    One guy I ride with is 100% convinced a 29er is THE perfect bike for him despite him never ever ridden one. He says stuff like this when he's still riding a 26" bike,

    "Dude, all companies have stopped 26" bike productions and EVERYONE is switching."

    "I could so ride this with a 29er!" While looking at a super rocky/tech section

    "This is the perfect trail for a 29er"

    I only have a dh bike so we're riding trails with very little uphill.

    I ride 29ers, And as far as I can remember I was an A hole before I brought it, So the bike has little to do with it.

    FWIW I was a Much bigger A hole when I was car racing & that had even smaller wheels than 26"

    29ers suck monkey balls and are only for gay little boys who can't ride dh so they ride so big tires to feel special

    heh moosey, have a similar story. was at a local trail head we use for parking. on one side there is a bunch of freeride trails we like to session (all sizes of drops/jumps). on the other side there is a bunch of xc trails that are fairly sanitized. the xc crowd does not venture to the dark side trails, most of them don't even know these trails exist.

    while we where gearing up with our pads/full faces a rigid 29er in full matching plum smuggling regalia rides by. we are a friendly bunch and say hello. he stops, unclips, says hi and then tells us that he thinks all our pads and big bikes are overkill for these trails. he proceeds to give us a full explanation how the rigid 29er is vastly superior for rolling over 4" logs on the trail (i kid you not). i couldn't resist and egged him on by saying "you really think so? wow, i have been doing it wrong, tell me more." judy gave me a poke in the ribs to shut me up and send the plum smuggler on his way...

    Plum Smuggler, Hilarious! You know what I'm talking about, These guys who just need social skills as well as a few riding lessons. Friggin jack-asses. Its not the bikes, it's the aholes that ride them, mostly, but not all. I guess some of you out there didn't get that. Funny how people read into things...You should read the posts in the 9er forum when I simply asked: " What makes 9ers so great?" Six pages later, It further proves my point.

    Again, the question is: "Why are 29er guys so uptight?" not "why are 29ers bikes so gay?" I never asked or said that.
    Maybe they feel a little guilty like they are cheating by making it easier? I don't know.

    Maybe in a couple of years they can get a 29er wheelchair, and brag about how they don't need the handicap ramps in the retirement home.

    a rigid 29er probably is much more efficient for rolling over small logs than a big fr bike.

    Who'd of thought 30 +/- years ago the reason I was turning into a little prick was .... someday I'd drink the Coolaid and buy a 29er !?!? Where were you guys then ?? Thanks for nothing

    It is crazy how that ******bag personality does seem to gravitate towards all things different in life . I still love my 26" and ride them both regularly, same trails, mountains, DH parks. Two different toold for the job.

    Good post, keep it going .... I wanna sit back with the popcorn when Captain Hardcore arrives

    I ride DH on a 26" bike and XC on a 29" bike. I love them both. I like playing for both teams.......

    This thread is kind of funny. I also have experienced a 29er rider or two try to convert me to his ways in similar methods as described above.
