26" wheels are only 26" when using 1.95 or 1.75 tires. It's 26" that's mis sized, stop calling 26" 26", because it isn't 26".

If everyone was getting duped, how long before the system collapses? I guess one person thinks economics doesn't make sense based on the neg props.

The people who can afford bikes are who the companies are selling to. I have been making this point for three years. Neg prop me for all I care. Economics is pretty simple, but a lot of people don't get it, or want to ignore it. Again, if you can't afford this years product, the manufacturers would be stupid to make a bike for you. Are you going to buy your 2014 bike at full price in 2016 when you choose to buy? It's absurd.

NovemberBravo: If you are riding a 2008 bike, and can't afford a new one, why would you be upset that the standard has changed? You do realize that people who cannot afford new bikes are NOT who the manufacturers are marketing to, right?

They're not clones, they are the original. Companies buy them and have their logo lazer etched on them. Its just like Novatec hubs, They make almost everyone else's hubs.

I agree. 68 is great for all around use, and 67 is slack for 650b.

E-Thirteen Finally Answers the Age-Old Question:
This article is pretty laughable. There are many variables that affect wheel performance. Weight is obviously important, and reciprocating weight is important more so. Wheels also need to address traction, stiffness, air volume, rolling resistance, and gyroscopic effect. Has no one learned that a good trait is good in balance with other traits? EVERYTHING is a trade off. No one rides 24" wheels to get extra maneuverability at the WC level do they? It trades off too much. In DH 29" wheels trade off too much on the other end. That leaves 26 and 27.5" wheels. It seems the teams and the market are speaking very loudly.
