    Fischer 26" team racers?

    I have a question. I just looked at the 04 or 05 whatever fischer catalog. I noticed that the fischer team race bikes are 26". If 29er's are so good, why don't the factory gary fischer riders ride them?

    Nat Ross and Chameron Chambers are both Fisher riders that race on 29ers.

    Fisher

    First off, Fischer is skis, Fisher is bikes.
    Last year was the first that 29ers were even legal in Norba and UCI races. Pro riders had not been riding them and take time to adapt. Even so, top endurance racers, Cameron and Nat both kicked major rear riding their 29ers as SuperE said. Add to that, Mike Curiak in his Great Divide victory (read this story on the MTBR archives) has won numerous events and records on the 29er. Fisher's top xc racer, Ryder Hesjedal, also used the 29er during last season. Unfortunately, Fisher lost him to the former US Postal road team (Discovery) this year, so Fisher is kind of starting over. Don't worry, 29ers ARE that good, and you will only see more and more of them.
