    I think it has to do with the weasel-squeezers most of them wear.

    It's because smart, well educated people ride them and those people are inherently uptight.

    Ahhh....the "rodies of the dirt".

    Because every one thinks they are gay! No offense against gay peeps, unless they ride 29ers of course.

    +1. I think it's lack of oxygen from the altitude- perched high above them clown wheels.

    This new breed of AM 29ers is gonna change that perception IMO.

    Because everyone else is buying 29er's and the advantage they had in races is going away fast.

    The 27.5 guys are quickly setting a new standard for uptightness.

    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 helps me to loosen up.





    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.

    Bikes are awsome...I've got a bunch...one of 'um is a 29er...I like it a lot. Just picked up a mod trials Koxx too. I'm usually super uptight, but I've downed like 4 StormKings while watching Christmas movies with my 5 yr old. Merry Christmas everyone ( maybe the pirate could post up some honey in a sexy santa outfit about now?)

    FWIW the Karen girl in "Frosty the Snowman" completely reminds me of Rachel Atherton...I think it's the nose?...

    Some 29ers are fun, I have a couple and a DH bike with 26-inch wheels. Say what you want, the Canfield Yelli Screamy is perhaps the most fun bike ever made.

    not stereotyping, but once I was riding at my local hill, me and my bud were hitting a little 4' drop to warm up, and this guy in full Lycra pedaling a full suspension 29er comes pedaling up, I nodded and waved, then lowered my helmet and put on my goggles to drop in, when the guy yells "Hey!"

    I'm kinda like "hows it goin?" then turn back to the drop and start getting ready to hit it.

    Then he's all "you ever rode a 29er before?"

    I'm like "no, they aren't really developed for this type of riding yet" and point at the drop, but I added in "but I hear they're great for XC"

    He then started up in some fat rant about how amazing they are and how they make yer penis bigger and blah blah blah all this BS and I'm just like "bro chill" and he just keeps yakkin about how great they are.

    At one point I seriously said "Haha well I gotta go, sick bike thoug-" and he cut me off to keep talking about how amazing his bike is. It took a few more compliments about his bike, and a few more "oh cool, I'll have to try a 29er" comments to get the guy to leave me alone. and all he said about my bike is "Oh yea, a 29er will work a lot better then that old thing..." talking about my 2011 evil revolt with fox 40, and vivid coil rc2.

    Like, I respect 29ers, they have a place in our sport, hell I'd even try one if I had the chance, but this dude took it to extremes. Don't tell me yo little gary fisher 29er with 3" of travel would be better for bombing down hills than my Evil Revolt. That's just a stupid argument. Dude was a dweeb.

    anywho story/rant time is over. I met tons of good 29er riders who are respectful of me and my tiny ass 26" wheels, but that one tubby dweeb was the first 29er I met, and kinda left me with a bad impression of 29er.

    sorry, the thread title reminded me of that story.

    .

    Hey! There is no place in this thread for this kinda talk. Dude was a prick, and he was a prick simply because he rode a 29er. Stand up, be proud and tell the world
