    they do ride great in the snow. Here's my first ride on a 29er in the snow. Last year should've been my first, but I had a nasty surgery.

    The wheel is turning and you can't slow down,
    You can't let go and you can't hold on,
    You can't go back and you can't stand still,
    If the thunder don't get you then the lightning will.

    that song is about a 29er...Yeah!!!

    What tires do you have and what air pressure were you running? My first snow ride left me on the ground alot, but I didn't lower my pressure...

    These handle snow pretty well too...

    It's sort of a 29er.

    Now you just need to get GF (gary fisher) to update the geo and re-issue this in a 29r.

    Bontrager XDX TLR 2.1" at about 25# works great for me. http://bontrager.com/model/07573

    A lot of people will tell you bigger knobs. I don't know if a more aggressive tread works better but logic suggests it would.

    I get good grip on ice with those tires and bigger knobs won't help you there. The treads clear really well too.

    I'm happy with my set up so I'm not changing it.

    Your poor BB and hub bearings!

    Got to surf some hardpacked snow on New Years Eve at Fair Hill in MD. FH is always fast and flowy, but riding it in the snow, on my 29er with big tires (Ardents, 2.4 in front, 2.25 in back) was like riding an un-ending wave of snowy fun!

    Much better than slogging through on a 26er...

    Shut up.

    (Spoken from someone living in Minnesota, where it's 6 degrees, and it's always either freezing-ass cold and sunny or warmer and cloudy, it's been snowing every week for the last 2 months, and is probably suffering from a bit of Seasonal Affective Disorder)....lol

    Today, I walked around in short sleeves on the beach. I had to put on a jacket around sundown, it was getting a little cool.

    Mmm. San Diego.
