    What size do you ride 26er, 27.5 or 29er...

    ... and what do you ride XC, Trail, AM, FR or DH?

    29+

    everywhere from green-trails at Brown's Ranch to double blacks in Sedona.

    I admit a hardtail isn't the best tool for National or Hangover, but I've tried it and I'd probably do it again.

    29er HT SS Race/XC/Trail
    29er FS (100/100) Race/XC/Trail
    27.5 FS (130/125) Trail/AM/Endro


    Then again some days I will take my 27.5 on dirt path with my daughter for the relaxed ride.

    29 and 26. Give me a 27.5 and I'll ride that, too.

    XC I guess, though some of the trails are marked as FR. I take them pretty easy.

    I feel most comfortable on 26 & 27.5, even after having owned many 29"ers. I have a 26 single speed, and 27.5 FS. Works for me at the moment.

    Big wheels work pretty well when itís very rough, and not very twisty.
    Most desert dwellers have figured that out.

    When they start cutting twisty trails in AZ, then maybe. I love desert riding, but compared to the riding back east, this is dead straight. I imagine Iíd hate my current bike if I still lived in Tennessee or NC.

    Do you just ride the desert or dont consider the mountain trails to be twisty compared to back east?

    Im also from Tennessee. Our trails here in Flag no where near as twisty Cept for some reason all our trails like to use big trees as an apex for turns.
