First Ride: Rocky Mountain Maiden
Honesty couldn't care what wheel size you're on. Ride 20's for all I care, I'm still on 26. I'm just saying no one is going to utilize that feature. It just there to appease you people who aren't going to buy the bike anyways. Because change is scary. No chance am I going to spend $6k and then buy shittier wheels and tires just so I can be that cool guy who rocks small wheels. Should go and buy a 2006 big hit and run 24/26.

Because it has no advantage other than 'to try it out'. People buy multiple sets of wheels because they have a race day wheelset and a training wheel set or and adventure wheelset etc. Same size of tire to swap tubes/tires between. No one is going to spend 5.5k+ just to buy a set of old stock wheels. The only likely circumstance I could see is that if you taco'd a wheel and you still own a 26" wheelset in the garage, that happens to be current enough to have a 157mm hub.

I think is actually silly to me to have both wheel sizes. Bike comes with 27.5 are you telling me people are going to go out of their way to put a smaller wheel size on it? All of the new tires/wheels coming out are 27.5. So you're going to buy a brand new flashy dh bike and put non current wheels on it? 35mm bar stem, cinch crankset, all kinds of other stuff that is bleeding edge. But we give someone the option to do something stupid with it. All it does is appease those who won't be buying it anyways.

If you look at the development cycle you will see that it wasn't started until 650b came out. Rocky was one of the earliest adopters 650b with their current altitude. Which came out in 2013.

Results: Mont-Sainte-Anne World Cup XC - Finals
Am I missing something? U23 12 minutes faster than Elite? Also what is interesting to me is that in both the U23 and the Elite categories, the mens and womens times are close, comparatively speaking to the Downhill Circuit.
