Gwin's Not Racing MSA, But He is Training on a 29" YT Tues
The only caveat to everyone on 29 is that trails and features will gradually change too, larger rocks, longer transitions on jumps, wider turns etc. so in the end it won't make much difference.

@ka-brap: It would be interesting to know what makes the most difference, the performance change of a service or the confidence gain of knowing it's had a service. Some blind testing please someone!

Staff Rides: Photographer Matt Wragg's Scott Spark
I don't think it's strange that pimped up xc style bikes with more relaxed angles should be popular, efficient and fun on what 90% of people are riding for 90% of their time on the bike.

Video: Insane Crash at the Tour de France
@mitochris: there's also the matter of cars being built to withstand collisions at speed for the safety of the people inside the car. What does it matter that you can't see where you're going, if you hit something you'll be fine...shame about the thing you hit. Ah, but now we can trust an algorithm to do the looking for us, so there is even less reason to care what's going on around you, just carry on having that text/sms conversation, you'll be fine.

Comparison Test: Are Wider Rims Better? We Try 4 Different Widths
@marky-d: I understand your reasoning, there is another factor. Consider a skinny road tyre, 25mm diameter at 20psi- that's much too soft to ride. Now consider a fat tyre 4.8 inches 120mm diameter at 20psi-this is far too hard to ride. Given a load of 100lbs, the 25mm diameter tyre will be flat on the floor and the 120mm fat tyre will hardly be compressed, so they may both approach a contact patch of 5 inches square, but it is clear this is not ideal. So for real world riding considering the hoop stress/ casing tension and accounting for diameter with pressure choices makes sense even if it isn't a perfect system.
