    Is C'dale Bad Boy a 29er?
    Newbie here. Been riding mostly road bikes (Cannondale Snapse). Moving to C'dale Bad Boy Ultra (just picked up). I love the ride and versatility of this bike, but I was just wondering if this bike is considered to be a 29er? I know I can switch the wheels and tires to a 26inch with Mtn tires but currently is running a 700 x 28 wheel tire combo. I think the most I can run on this frame is 700 x 32? (not sure about that). Any thoughts or comments. Thanks in advance.

    I was going to buy one but the frame can't accept 29" mountain tires for width reasons.

    Nope, its their standard 26er frame with 700c wheels and tires...A 29er requires the ability to run a 29" tire which the Bad Boy cannot do.

    You might be able to 650b the bike.
