Anything that tests my riding ability, a good scare is fun.

One more thing perhaps we should use 29ers for dirt jumps, they carry speed much better....

Also I want to see how this new dual chamber tyre system schwalbe has developed works out, will make a huge increase in grip that shadows any gain given by changing wheel size.

I had a thorough look and couldn't find any 29er dh tyres, there may be but not easily found, also by the time you add the extra weight of the bigger rim, bigger tube and bigger tyre you end up with a noticeable handicap on handling. If you run maxxis the weight difference between a 26 and 27 on a super tacky HR2 is over 100g plus add the distance however small it is. It isn't a game changer, if one person did it and was getting a significant advantage then more people will jump straight on that band wagon. Going by your theory the enduro world series should have been dominated by 29ers and 650b but as results showed a bike doesn't make the rider. I think Sam got confused between 27.5(actually 27) and 29 so it was an error rather than not knowing.

I'm going to start calling you 'Amatour'. The funny thing is if you watched any Gwin interviews from before and during the race lately you'd have heard him say he runs the short chainstays when he's at home but prefers longer chainstays when he's racing. Also regarding your earlier comment about demos having no success in the last 5 years, does 2009 not count as success? Sam hill was on the podium at almost all the wcs that year.

He actually didn't get shorter chainstays, he just runs them in the short position which is 435mm, demo is around 425mm I believe.
