    VT 50 and Hampshire 100 ? about 29'r bike preference...

    Are more people going HT of FS on 29'rs on these races? I'm looking to pick up a 29'r this year. I already have a FS 26 inch bike with 5" of travel and want another bike in the quiver for endurance rides. I'm just not sure if my back or arse can handle 6+ hrs on a HT. Just curious to see what other riders at these events are running.

    I've done the VT 50 since 06 on a Santa Cruz Blur (obviously 26" and FS). This year I'm on a 29" Lynskey HT. The course is not overly technical, but I'll probably just be a little slower on the downhills (and hopefully quicker on the uphills).
