Specialized S-Works Enduro 29 - Reviewed
Protour is not alone - look back on PB to the 650B advertorial - the Black Market Bikes guy recons 29ers are too fast and lack control compared to 650B wheeled bikes. Mitch crashed at PMB on his 29er this year too and didn't even qualify. My local bike shop, which deals in high end 29ers like Niner, recons 29ers cause accidents - newbies pick up too much speed and crash when the going suddenly gets rough. Frankly I think more people ride than ever before, trails are trickier and bikes are faster in general, regardless of the wheel size...

Just to remind you - we had one 650B proponent going on record here that 29ers were too fast and led to a loss of control so 650 was better. I think Mitch knows this now too. Now I wonder if the same argument holds for 650 vs 26". This is such fun.

So a 29" dh tyre weighs the same as a 26" dh tyre despite being 3"bigger? Who would have thought that was possible. I think Mitch should ask for a fat bike - huge wide tyres and all the grip he needs. Actually that is probably the answer - a 29" fat bike to provide all that grip he doesn't have because his wheels are so heavy he goes too fast. Actually all his exploits prove is that 29ers have no place in DH. You need speed with control.

All of this philosophical bike shite is great. A few facts - some Euro's came to race the Cape Epic on 26ers last month! That's 800km of marathon racing on teeny tiny useless wheels. I am sure there were a lot of 650's and 29ers ahead of and behind them. Ratboy was on a potentially race winning run when his SRAM (?) failed also on teeny weeny wheels. I guarantee that a sixer will win races this year. in fact, Gwin will be on one when he switches back to his Demo, and it looks like he is back on form. I just picked up a set of 1700gm sixer wheels for around $45 brand new. Perfect for longer XC rides on my AM bike. Bring this innovation on - it's working for me.
