    I have been practicing 29ers this year for the Humdinger, with only a few road bike trials rides on LCC.

    Yeah, we need to talk about that 'advantage.' Based on my observations the other night we're going to have to employ UCI Road Bike Rules to that 29'er and add some ballasts or dead weight to that thing like maybe tying an old car tire to your seatpost or something. Either that or put you in the Specialized penalty box for a bit.

    Or you can raise your seatpost on the descents as another option.

    Oh, I wouldn't ride THAT bike in the Humdinger, it's too scary with the high saddle and sketchy parts.

    There, I fixed it for you.

    The carbon trials bike stuff is just wrong. It's obviously some kind of trick photography because no one can ride like that without at least 7" of travel.

    Thanks. I'm losing my touch (obviously).
