Pinkbike Poll: What's Next?
@JesseE, I have given it a shot. Maybe not logged enough hours on 27.5 to feel every specific difference, but enough to get an idea of how the wheel size affects the geo. I have demo'd a couple fullys from jamis and specialized and I am happy with how they ride relative to a 29er. (Still very smooth, lots of traction, but a bit more agile.) However, if we are talking about having fun on the trail and catching some air off of roots/logs.. I have to say that i have more fun on my 26... It is just a smaller, more nimble, more controllable machine. I dont think of wheel sizes as good or bad. I see them as a set of tools, almost like weapons in a video game... - A 26" bike is like a shot-gun; Poor range, good power, lots of fun. - A 29er is like a sniper rifle; Steady, Fast, purposeful. - 27.5 is the assault rifle; Adaptable, fun, and confidence inspiring. ...sorry if the analogy is gun-centric, I thought it was a decent parallel to draw on.

Pinkbike Poll: What's Next?
Is it me or does the phrase, "open seal" sound a little bit paradoxical? Additionally, I have been riding and working on bikes for a long time now and have never heard of 47.48 as the magical BB diameter. I think we have a joker here...

Pinkbike Poll: What's Next?
In my opinion, 26 should be kept as a viable wheel size for a few reasons... -Rolling weight, spool inertia, and centrifugal resistance are generally lower on a smaller rim diameter. (= more manageable dynamic properties) -More tire options are available. -A smaller wheel is generally a more laterally stiff wheel. -You are probably going to want to keep a smaller wheel option for small/x-small riders. (not everyone is kelly McGarry) -Suspension and tire-to-ass distance is more generous than 27/29" options, allowing you to drop your seat lower on descents. I have to think and hope that the old faithful 559.0 will not fade away so easily.

Pinkbike Poll: Time to Geek Out - What's Your Ideal Tire and Rim Width?
I want 3.0 tires on my 26". I also want to run them hard as fuck. 40+psi. I also want them to be light as hell and have a low knob height. I also want a ton of damn knobs. Knobs for fuckin days. Like a cross between a small block 8 and a micro knobber. Also with hella side lugs. I also want 29" wheels to die off. I also think 27.5 is bullshit. And I also didn't think there was anything wrong with 26... Had to get that off my chest. Also...
