    Personally, i hope we never do. MTBR's glorious excess of forums is the reason i keep coming back to ignore most of them.

    You can't the vrc forum cuts off at 1997, if you bung anything newer than that, it won't go well...

    need to have an Almost but not quite vintage/retro/classic forum and a Newish but not modern vintage/retro/classic forum.
    All the gear and no idea.

    Hopefully never. Kids and short adults need a frame size between 24" and 650B. That's too big a gap.

    It's absurd to allow a market-driven forum site to continue to pretend it's independent of industry control.
    If we, the alleged individuals who "drive" this site, wand a separate 26-er form, then, by god, let it continue.

    We are not ALL corporate fan-boiz.

    I guess you don't follow slope style, 4x, rampage, or pumptrack. When 26" is no longer used for those forms of competition you'll have an argument to make.

    Until then it's ignorant to say 26" is vintage. Maybe rephrase and say vintage for racing? Actually that doesn't work because 4x is racing, so is pumptrack for that matter. How about vintage at your LBS?

    Funny I was checking pinkbike and just noticed an article about a 26'er today. The facts are in 2019 we still see top pros opting for 26" wheels. They often have to modify just to get that 1" smaller wheel they want. Either that or Giant is making custom 26'ers for their pros like some other companies have been doing.
