Video: 2014 Colorado Freeride Festival Finals
...Exactly the same tricks as Semenuk! haha. On another note, I feel some poetic license being used with the word 'cashroll', Rogatkin didn't even go upside down, it was more like a late-dumped 720, perhaps the judges picked up on that and scored him accordingly.

Fail Of The Month - July
#5 only because that exact same thing has happened to me twice trying to ride downhill on a twitchy slopestyle bike, such a horrible feeling but surprisingly I got up fairly ok both times too, just a headache and some bruises - definitely the worst feeling when riding getting bucked over the bars at speed

Spank Oozy Trail295 Bead Bite Wheelset - Review
I guess you could get chain reaction to build a set up with Hope pro2 evo hubs for the same or less with 40t pickup. Clutches have huge angle of engagement though

Spank Oozy Trail295 Bead Bite Wheelset - Review
Nice review, shame they don't have a sealed rim bed, how many engagement points does the hub have?

Preview: Kona's 2015 Lineup
Damn i should have said 50yr olds to be safe. Lol. No offence intended i was just making a stereotype :-p Just meet a bunch of guys at trails who all ride new 650b/29rs, generally Yeti or Santa cruz, and basically mock my 26" wheels and are determined I wont be able to get up the technical climbs with my inferior wheels as its "impossible on 26" wheels" haha. They are like living breathing marketing bull$hitters for big wheels, all of which information they cite as being from 'the guy at their bike store'...

Ask Pinkbike - Damper Trouble, Adjustable Travel Forks, and 26" or 29" Wheels for Beginners
My point being an actual beginner, out on the trail, from my experience, will find a 26" more enjoyable, easier and more fun to ride than a 29" $600 bike of identical spec. They will notice none of the perceived benefits this website foes on about and will simply appreciate the better manoeuvrability of the smaller wheels.

Ask Pinkbike - Damper Trouble, Adjustable Travel Forks, and 26" or 29" Wheels for Beginners
Deeeight, as i commented earlier, I've introduced a bunch of people to mountain biking over the years, more recently with the 29" wheels its been interesting, everyone ends up with an entry level 29" simply because of the lack of choice at stores, but when given a chance to ride a 26" of near identical spec they have all preferred it, these are real beginners and it seems only wannabe enthusiasts manage to find 29ers better, I've given them a fair chance myself and find them slower on all my local trails, slower to accelerate, slower to turn and harder to pick a good line through rocky and rooty sections so you get slowed down more there too.
