    That is all I ride. My old 90's Schwinn. I tried a fs bike last summer. They are just not for me.

    I just built a full rigid Trek 3500. I put on a Nashbar fork to replace the cheezy Suntour fork. Took it out for the maiden voyage today! Lots of fun, very flick-able and climbs like a goat!

    Funny thing, like most of us my first "real" bike was a 26" HT, a Fisher Wahoo, then a cdale Rize, then a Fisher X-cal(29"). I've done pretty much every upgrade to the wahoo that can be done, it's now a 1x10 and i think it may be my favorite ride right now.

    I ride a GF Wahoo 26" HT. I need to upgrade but I really like it as is. Upgraded fork after killing the stock ST coil.

    Recently tried some friends brand new 29er FS and 29er HT. Felt awkward and so out of place on them. Couldn't wait to get back on my 26er.

    One thing I noticed I had an easier time with was tight cornering, the smaller turn radius and accelerating from a stand still with my 26er over their 29ers.

    But yes, once we started rolling they got out in front

    Still love my 26er even though its really entry level

    For the last year or two my 26" ht has definitely been my 3rd most used bike (of 3). But I swapped it over to ss a few months ago and have been loving it.
