Interview: Trek's Travis Brown On Experimenting With 32" & 36" Wheels
Travis said those big wheel bikes look stupid. I thought about it and yeah, maybe that's true. But then it dawned on me. It looks stupid because it's a bicycle. We just don't think bikes with small wheels look stupid because we are used to them. So that bad reaction to big wheel bikes is our genuine reaction to a bicycle. It's the reaction we would have to any bicycle if we saw one for the first time right now. 29, 32 and 36" bicycle hating, is really bicycle hating plain and simple. A bicycle is a strange contraption, we only tolerate them because we are used to them. Or, we tolerate the ones we are used to because we just don't think about it.

Video: Developing iDrive and the DHi in Episode 3 of 'Full Travel'
So why did they abandon the i-drive to go with a run-of-the-mill design? Market trends?

First Ride: Kenda's New Pinner Pro Tire & 9 Questions With Aaron Gwin
@R-M-R: A 2.4 Hellkat AEC definitely grips more than a 2.6 MaxxTerra DHRII (that's actually a 2.5), that much I can say, but perhaps a comparison with a Maxxgrip would be more fair.

First Ride: Kenda's New Pinner Pro Tire & 9 Questions With Aaron Gwin
Not on par, but definitely better. The Hellkat AEC is the grippiest tire I know, and the weight/strength ratio is great. The Hellkat ATC is a miracle tire because it rolls good, grips great, and my 29" version only weighs 850 grams. So for trail use, the ATC is an incredible option, and for enduro the AEC has the best carcass available with a relatively low weight of 1080 grams, and a grip that won't let go. Only the rolling resistance isn't the best, for that reason I would consider the Pinner at the rear, however it's not available with the AEC carcass which would be quite enough for what I ride. The Pinner's ATC carcass seems to have a comparable weight to the Hellkat's AEC, but it doesn't have the RSR rubber that the AEC and AGC versions have, which is "the bee's knees". It's strange that it's firmer than the ATC's, but it simply sticks to the ground.

Review: Spot's Ryve 115 29 is a Part-Time Racer Doing Trail Bike Duty
@hardtailparty: I had checked their other bikes, but they go for the horizontal shock placement. That probably answers my question of whether this configuration could be adapted to a higher travel. Probably not optimal.

Review: Spot's Ryve 115 29 is a Part-Time Racer Doing Trail Bike Duty
Can’t this design be expanded to more travel? It looks like the perfect bike to me, the basic frame design that is. Nice, clean, stiff, low center of gravity, space for water bottle. It could be the universal bike design for all applications because there would be no reason to do anything else. Provided that it really can be adapted to longer travel. Does anyone know of a bike with a similar VPP implementation and more travel, besides the Giant Reign?

Kenda Releases New Pinner Tire Developed with Aaron Gwin
Yeah right. Tires are both the most critical and the most compromised component on a bike. How can you be happy with your tires?? But who knows, maybe one day there will be a tire that combines strength, grip, good rolling resistance and light weight. Maybe nano tech will bring us that!
