    Has anyone else found that amid all the wheel size debates the good old 26er is still a heck of alot of fun?
    Yep...like a Mini Cooper on a slalom course!

    I really like having a 26er and a 29er......worlds of difference between the 2 bikes, but both are still trail bikes to the core.

    The difference between them makes switching back and forth between rides even more fun.

    I have been riding my 26er a lot lately and agree.

    Agree.....100% (even though riding a 26er is about as fashionable as a mullet to some folks out there)

    That's the thing with me. I don't care about what "some folks" think is "fashionable." People like that mean nothing to me.

    That's quite a frame. I could envision adding one more bike to my quiver.......and that frame makes for a 2-fer.

    I have two mountain bikes, a HT 29er & a full suspension trail bike 26". Both are great to ride for different reason.

    I have one bike !!! A 26er , and love it .
    Me - "yeah it's a 26" when asked , them- " are you havin fun and enjoy riding " me- "hell yeah" them - "that's all that matters" and I agree , I love my rig.

    The 29er bike snob that said "I could never go back to a 26er because 9er's are SOOOOO much better can F off !
    Hit the trails with your bike and get freaky.
