    Good job!

    I just got rid of my last 26" full suss bike...it had been gathering dust in my workshop for over a year.

    Ditto. My last one (a green Spot SS frame) is on eBay now.

    You bet...

    Let me know if any one is looking to get rid of a large, nice, 26" wheel, steel (or Ti) frame. Must have horizontal track ends and be V brake compatible.

    I'd be glad to take it off your hands.

    I'm slowly cannibalizing the 26" bikes to add parts to my 29'ers. Pretty soon, nothing but frames....oh and 26" wheels

    Wow, I am lucky

    I got rid of my 26er almost two years ago when they were still fetching good money

    I'm keeping the ol' 26er girl around for good. Riding the new ss Niner has been nice, but not that much nicer. I'll admit I bought into the hype a bit, but it's still a new bike so no complaints

    though i had to sell it to fund the new Ventana (which I love), I do miss having a 26er (single speed anyway). My next bike one day will likely be a light, v-brake, Ti 26" single speed.

    I'm keeping my Stumpjumper for the rougher stuff. 'Til I can afford a full-suss 29er, that is.

    I had planned on getting a nice steel 29er, but with so many migrating to the 29er and selling their fairly new 26" rigs, I'm postponing my plans.

    when to sell the 26er.

    i'm with u curious.

    have a scalpel and a gary fisher rig. hardly ever ride the scalpel, so i've thought of selling it. the thing is that there are rides from time to time that are good for gears. but i'm with u. there is going to be a revolution. i predict that within the next year or so, 29er will be all the rage. so i'm going to wait and hold onto the scalpel probably. i can always turn it into a sweet, light, fs, singlespeeder. any input? i do look forward to getting a geared 29er though.

    From all my reading, I was guessing, 29 compared to 26

    a little better or a little worse or somewhere inbetween but slightley different,
    not knocking the 29 inch new world order, just saying I'm way to tight to re-tool while there is so much cost effective 26 inch gear in to be had.

    Beside IMO 26" or 29" bikes, the smaller sizes just look cooler.
