    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.

    26", rigid, steel

    I am still riding 26" wheels. Recently had a rigid fork built for my late 90's Ibis Mojo. It is the most fun I have had on the trail in a long time. Here is mine.

    Absolutely sweet bike. Your photograph skills are excellent too (flipped through a few after I clicked on your bike). The ones from the aquarium are very impressive.

    Very entry level but I regret selling my Hardrock so bad. I upgraded literally everything but the frame and when I was low on money I sold it for $150 in mint condition. I really miss that bike and I have the urge to buy another 26" hardtail but my fiancée would kill me after she warned me not to sell it because I would only buy another one down the road.

    I still have the Epic 26" and that bike isn't going anywhere. I've proven to myself that it's slower than the Trance on the trails I ride but it has a fun factor that not many bikes can match.

    I miss my 26" HT with V-brakes. That bike climbed like a mule with roids. I sold it to a friend that was starting out in MTB'ng. It hasn't seen a trail since

    I own both a full suspension and hardtail. While I do love how smooth my FS is, nothing beats the feel of riding a hardtail. It just brings everything to life IMO.

    I love my 26 ht, although I'm still dialing it in! This is coming from riding bmx for many years.

    I ride exclusively 26er hardtail. This is because I only have one bike. This bike has 26 inch wheels and a hard tail. My wife won't let me buy more bikes Which is probably for the best...

    Oh, and that Bianchi Tycoon up there is pure sex on a stick! I want!
