Five Things We Learned in Leogang
Maybe the answer to the wheel size question is: "What ever fits the rider best" will be best?

Giant Trance Advanced 1 - Review
I spent 12 bucks on the Shimano funnel and brake fluid, and just give them a burp once a month, its super simple and the funnel design makes it a snap to do. It makes mine feel minty every time.

Giant Trance Advanced 1 - Review
We just picked up a 2017 Trance 4 for the ol' lady. She was riding a Specialized Jynx last summer to get more comfortable on the trails, this spring she decided it was time for full suspension. After looking at many many different brands, makes, woman's bikes, unisex bikes, short travel/ long travel we found the Trance. It's priced at less than $2 grand CND (which is a super deal) it has beefy 150mm/140mm SR Suntour air suspension, a excellent part spec with the new frame geo and link held together with Giant Aluxx aluminum instead of the carbon above. She has taken to that bike like a fish to water, her riding style was very safe and easy, now she's whipping on Advance Difficulty trails and she is bringing up the rear with a smile on her face. She's murdering climbs and is pedaling way faster on normal trails. I thought at first she may miss the smaller hardtail on the tighter stuff, but she's loves it in all conditions. I've never owned a Giant before, but I must say they really hit the mark on the new Trance, she loves it. All it needs is a dropper, Some Spank bars and a shorter stem next year and she will be set. I think this bike is the modern version of a mountain bike. it just seems to work well on most terrain with most riders. 10/10 would recommend.

Multiple Line Miracle: 2017 US Open – Finals
@tjbiker38: I'm assuming it was you guys then at MSA last summer beating on that thing for the Mens final at UCI? With "Make downhill Great again" or something written on it with sharpie? I was wondering the same thing until I saw the massive crack on it...

Trek Session 29 vs 27.5 – First Ride
@h-beck83: I was forced in the terms of my LBS owner making me try the 29 before I knew I wanted it. I've got lots of extras for my 26, and they are going to last considering how much I ride it now. And standards are important, they make things better and cheaper for the masses, they don't exist to make people buy new bikes. If you worked in engineering, manufacturing or design you would understand how stupid that statement is. Also, I rode the same 26 bike for years and years, past the first 29 trend, then 27.5 then back to 29, then with carbon frames, air suspension and every other change in this industry in the last 10 years. And instead of ranting on the internet about how air suspension is the devil because everyone know coil springs are best, I just rode my bike and didn't worry about it. Then I made a choice based on what felt right to me when upgrading, not what the internet was telling me.

Trek Session 29 vs 27.5 – First Ride
It's the 29er PB Haters ball! Srrsy, whats the problem here? Should the bike industry apologize for trying to make bikes better? Or is the issue here that the 29er's showed up, then 650B and now we are back to 29? I understand that 27.5 was easier to make it work better, where as since there is a much larger delta between 26, and 29 so it took a while to get right.. No one is getting forced to trade your old bikes in, if you like 26 then duke on. But don't hate simply because it's different or better/faster. I remember reading the internet looking at these goofy wagon wheeled bikes, then seeing my old 26in hardtail, thinking these big-wheeled bikes are getting pretty silly.. Then I was forced to ride one, and now I wouldn't give it up. I feel cheated for riding this long and now after 25 years I finally get a bike that fits right. Sorry kids the 29ers are the future, look at XC racing, its 29' or why bother, and soon DH will be a similar tail. Nobody is going to sit around when there are valuable seconds sitting on the table for free.

Mr Wolf Banger Tire Insert - First Ride
Everyone wants their piece of the pie, so it only makes since in the land of $3000 dollar wheel sets and 12 million dollar ti bolt kits that a $300 rim tube makes since.. Well at least to MR Wolf banger that wants in to our ridiculously priced sport. I just want to ride my bike not spend more on what sane people spend on a whole bike just for some foam tubes. If I wanted tubes I would got get a pair for $20 bucks and stop worrying about sealant, leaky valve stems or pumping my tires every time I hop on the bike..

Pinkbike Poll: If Racing Does Improve the Breed, Will You Trade up to 29-inch Wheels?
@bikebike69: But, there are plenty of aggressive riders on 29? I don't feel that's a fair assumption. Let's say "short" Aggressive riders. Look at Josh, the last worldcup he won was on a 26' V-10 long after the rest of the team went 650B. 2 weeks ago Rat's doing a bike check with a 29 Hightower which he seems to be enjoying on his 50to01 highjynx.
