    Wink 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.
    I like turtles

    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.
