Couple things to learn:
The 29er has its place. I enjoy it as a rigid SS, but would not choose to use it as a geared or FS bike, however thats my personal opinion and I do not look down on anyone that does by any means!
Number two: mountain bike action is absolute garbage. If you would like I can take out my latest issue and show you where they are factually wrong, they obviously don't believe in proofreading. Not to mention their opinions are garbage.
As for 29, just cuz you don't simply bad mouth them for everyone else.
I ma interested in Stumpjumper full suspension have you heard anything on this topic?
and he said something about neither confirming or denying such rumors. He said probably not based on the SJ platform because next year its going to be 6" of travel, which I took as a load of krapp. No reason not to have less travel in the FS SJ 29er.
I also heard a rumor that it was going to be based on the Epic, which I think would be a mistake.
Man, I would be all over a 4" SJ 29er. I have a Monocog 29er and love it. I also have an '03 SJ and love it, but would love big wheels even more.
