 Ride what you want and stop talking shit is basically the best way for the wheel size thing to be handled. No #26FORLIFE or #650ISTHEFUTURE, just riding bikes and riding what you want to. Everyone has their own preferences, as with everything in life, not everyone will conform to one trend or another.

 This isn't a crack at 650B, they're just showing you can rip all wheelsizes. Norbs is on a 26 Stumpy, Hunter on a Enduro 29er, and I dont know who the dude at the end is but he's bombing down that hill so fast on what I'm assuming is the new Stumpy 650B. All 3 of those guys are faster than us, regardless of the wheel size of their bike. Sick vid!

 John Hauer is fast as Hell. Fact. Local ruler no matter what wheel size he is on.
  • 5 1
 Maybe I'm wrong but did Rickyretardo just say he's faster than these three. Bold statement. Regardless love the video best I've seen in a while! Had a go on a 650b hardtail and was so much faster than normal even though it was a night ride! Definitely gonna have a 160mm 650b as my next bike!

 Bold statement is a bit lacking, more like shots fired, aside from the fact everyone can see he's holding a device that seems to fire bull feces.

 Loved the little root slide at the start, surprised they didn't do a second take for that. Well I found it funny...

 Cracked me up too - how many times does that happen in real life (every ride for me)!

 Could have saved 45 mins of my life if I just watched this vid instead of article on 650b. Matt is always good therapy. I feel much better now guys, big thanks!

 The two of them completely hauling ass!! Just wish there was not as much slo mo in it. Its looks cool and all but seeing just how ridiculously fast they are going is better IMO.

 Matt Hunter should have his own reality show it would start off at the trail head then the next half hour of the show would be the camera men trying to catch up to him on the trail

 Matt is possibly the most awesome rider to watch at the moment. Almost makes Norbs look average by comparison! Not saying that's the case by any stretch of the imagination but Matt is just another level of flooooowww Smile
