Commencal Unveils 2021 Meta AM 29
Will more people who want 27.5 be commenting here? Hard to say. I for one am taller, and would never ever go back to a smaller wheel size. They roll better, they turn just fine, I run light wheels, and I have no problem getting that bike to do absolutely whatever. I would only want an additional smaller wheeled bike for dirt jumps or the like. Would definitely go bigger.

The Moorhuhn is an Additive Manufactured Frame Hoping To ‘Make Steel Sexy Again’
When I look out across the country, and many people can tell you... some of the best people, you know, and I see this carbon carnage I think, "Why carbon?" From all of the deals I've made with JINA I can tell you—and they were the best deals— really tremendous deals—the way they make these bikes, we need more American manufacturing. I say, "Why not bring these jobs back to America?" American STEEL. We need to bring back STEEL. Some of the best people—the best jobs I know—they're in steel. I ask people, "Why not steel?" and they can't give me a good reason. So I tell you, American steel, and bring back CLEAN COAL.

CyclingTips Digest: Gravel Bike vs Mountain Bike, E-bikes vs Gravel Bikes, and Lego Bikes
@RonSauce: Fair enough. I was under the impression you wanted to find gnar without having good gnar. A road bike is great for that when all you have are gravel roads and smooth trails. If you want to maximize comfort for most of your riding and buy a bike that shoots for the comfort on the terrain you'll be riding the most, a gravel bike makes sense if you have the cash.

@RonSauce: Ride it on a road bike if you want excitement. Don't make a new bike for it.

First Ride: Cannondale's All-New Scalpel SE
@friendlyfoe: But what if the gears had less closely-spaced ratios so that you didn't need to upshift (into a harder gear) two at a time? Just giving you a hard time here—I too think that feature is amazing.

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 8 - Do We Need an Even Larger Wheel Size?
@NotSorry: Notsorry that we disagree. I'm not talking trials here either. Give me the choice between a 26er and a 29er for an uphill, tight, techy climb with rocks and roots galore and given similar geometry I'll be on the 29er every time. The rollover advantage alone makes the deal. Yeah, if you're on a 29er enduro plow machine with 170mm of travel and a headtube angle less than a hot summer day in Guatemala measured in Celsius, some smaller wheels might trick you into feeling more agile. However, if your low-speed cornering ability is hampered then that's a problem with your geo and not the wheel size. In addition, I recommend that when giving feedback you take a more structured and critical approach: 1. First, consider if there are any areas of credit in the original piece and note them. Think phrases like, "It is nice that you brought up the point about..." and then perhaps offer a countering viewpoint. 2. Try to have substance in the response in addition to the appeals to pathos and ethos. Alternately: "At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you rational BECAUSE you didn't consider the certain benefits of smaller wheels like weight, strength, and torque for direction change." The word "because" is very helpful in these scenarios. 3. Avoid hypocrisy in your response. If you are critiquing rambling, avoid rambling by reinstating a single point multiple times in succession with no new information. 4. Bring up certain parts of the original argument that are in error. Quotations help strengthen the argument and offer an opportunity to juxtapose your alternate viewpoint with the original. 5. Offer different supporting or opposing sources to establish credibility.

@mikekazimer: kinda gtfo with the maneuverability argument though. I think on techy sections (uphills and turns certainly included) that 29 performs better than a 26. Yeah, if your bike is longer that makes some problems, but that's not solely chalked up to wheel size. Acceleration is definitely compromised when going up in wheels size, but I think maneuverability is the wrong word. I'll take a 29er any day on twisty, tight, chunky tech.
