    29er wheels going out of dish

    Is it easier for a 29er wheel to go out of dish than a 26? Just having some problems and was wondering about others experiences.

    If the wheel is built up by hand, and tensioned properly, there should be very little, if any difference with going out of dish for either size.

    Do you mean bending the rim through riding and impacts?

    i overbuilt my 26" wheels, never had to true them, overbuilt(and bought overbuilt) 29" wheels and likewise have never had to true them. so, in my experience, no, they're not easier to knock out of true.

    if you're really asking if they get knocked out of dish, then yes, but only after the lacing pattern reverses itself while riding. so keep an eye on that and all should be well.
