A few hours mountain climbing turns a rogue and a saint into two roughly equal creatures. Weariness is the shortest path to equality and fraternity—and liberty is finally added by sleep. —Nietzsche
I am NOT a MTBer, but I have ridden both 26s and 29s. No contest. 29.
Amen. I recently had a guy (riding his new 29r) ask me "did that bike come with 29 inch wheels or did you just fit them to an old* 26 inch frame?" Only because I'm a nice guy did I refrain from telling him that they were actually 26 inch wheels, just over-pumped.He must have done quite some research before his purchase.* GT Peace 9r in it's 5th year of hard labour.
I need a 29ér, Rohloff, magura brakes, fox fork and a penis extension....Or b any bike will get you there. i recently found more answers to stupid questions here http://surlybikes.com/blog/2514/ShaneBy the way, what does the joung lady cost without the t-shirt? :))www.shanecycles.com
@Shane: You get three of her with every T-shirt ordered, paid for and collected in Prince Albert, Western Cape. I know that might just make you think of a serious 180 degree detour ;) Keep the rubber side down.
