    It's a bit like watching guys jump 26s when you are used to watching 20s, not as bad though. And I have to ask, why? All the advantages of a 29er come from it being on the ground. I guess if you were REALLY tall, but it just sees like fixie tricks to me.

    Sorry to be Mr. Negative.

    Doesn't quite convince me that 29ers get way less air than smaller diameter wheeled bikes. I keep a 26er around, since I miss getting air sometimes.

    I would bet most on this forum couldn't do that, given any bike.

    The day I rode the Yelli Screamy with Chris on my local trails, the few jumps I hit, the YS felt very stable in the air, and I wasn't going anywhere near as big as Lance in the clip,
    MTBR is a cesspool.

    You have quite a lowly impression of plp on this forum, but I do imagine not many being able to do that. I'd point out that a large percentage of those people likely haven't seen anything like that sort near them or have free access to it.

    I know I'm a bit wary of doubles unless I see someone else on a similar bike nail it.

    NP, happens to the best of us from time to time. I find hitting some jumps or going on a nice ride takes care of that problem.

    I remember jumping my 1998 specialized hardrock like that after downing a few. Ended up with a taco for a fork.

    I haven't had a chance to get any air time on the Yelli yet so I took the opportunity to try it out. 29ers are more difficult to get through tight transitions and I'm sure a 26" bike would be better for this kind of riding but it was still alot of fun. It had great traction it the dry conditions, jumped surprisingly well. Nothing to big and I'm not much of a dirt jumper anyway but was a good day.

    Yep- Our 29er wheels are pretty tough-
    A 27mm wide rim-
    Although- I can't seem to stop riding like a downhiller on them-

    Maybe one day we'll have our full sus frame out-

    Yeah, that's some nice air, but then again I guess if you've already sent a 29er bike like he has a few years back, then this wouldn't be consider anything big.

    I'm gona throw a wild guess at the local being in Taiwan, somewhere near the factory Looks kind of familiar from some other vids I've seen from other manufacturers who have frames produced in Taiwan.

    Not a bad guess... it definitely ain't Utah!
    I don't know if we're spoiled or something, but there's plenty of stuff like that around here... to address the comment about access.
