    Please list some 2.6x29 bikes

    It seems many enjoy rims that are 29 or 30 mm.
    I am curious, i have an older style 29er with tiny rims, 2.4 in front, 2.2 in rear. I hope to demo some bikes to feel the difference. The 29x3.0 are just not what i am looking for.
    Next week demos are starting in my area.
    Thanks.

    I'm running 2.6 Maxxis Rekons on my Trance 29er. If you demo one though, it will likely have the 2.3 minions on it.

    Also, Ripmo and Ripley take them. I'm guessing the trend is for the newer 29ers to take up to 2.6" tires.

    Trek Fuel EX will take a 2.6 F&R, otherwise you're into Stache/Full Stache territory.

    The new Trek Top Fuel will ship with 2.4s. Knowing that Trek is pretty conservative, I suspect 2.6s will easily fit.

    I'll know for sure in July, when mine ships!
    Whining is not a strategy.

    Banshee Prime easily takes a 2.6 with the standard dropouts, 2.8 or a little bigger with the long dropouts.

    Ibis Ripmo, Ripley and DV9. I love having tires this size, it makes the ride so much better as long as you’re not in a cross country race what does it matter?

    Trek Slash and Remedy can fit up to true 2.6s.

    Great idea to demo a 29er. I should have done that before blindly buying a 26er replacement.

    I recently switched my 2016 Stache over to 29x26 on 30mm inner rim, its awesome. Still great traction but with firmer sidewall support in the rear tire on a HT feels great and bike just seems to accelerate out of turns much better.
    XC, Road, XXC, Endurance, Mtn, All-Mtn, Cross, Gravel, just go have fun on 2 wheels!

    What about your lower BB? Problems with pedal strikes? MY HT is on 27.5x3.0 and i want to go with smaller tires. My arms are 175 i might switch to 165. Thanks.
