Trek Session 29 vs 27.5 – First Ride
@SonofBovril: Yeah I understand how small of a market share DH is and that's interesting about the UCI, I didn't know that. I don't really care about the whole wheel-size thing, its about preserving the sport. My comments about standardization are more about "Sport' and keeping whatever sport is it "pure" or consistent. Every major sport I can think of has regulations for the "game/event/race", regulations that keep the sport about the athletes/teams and not just the technology. As with other racing sports I think both Enduro and DH would actually strengthen & benefit both in the short term and long term with regulations. We'll see, time will tell.

Trek Session 29 vs 27.5 – First Ride
Not a new idea but still proves true: The DH Race World needs to have standards like some other racing. I would start with making 27.5 mandatory. Then the bike industry can focus on making current products better and the race venues can focus on making the tracks better. Races time year over year no longer mean anything as the riders are on completely different machines. And to make Enduro more interesting do one of the following. -Either have specific races require a certain wheel size (i.e. 29 only for venue "A" & 27.5 only for venue "B".) -Or have a Weight Minimum, say 28 lbs, and then the industry can focus on creating the best and strongest Enduro bikes within a given spec range. Regulation would improve both the sports and the equipment as it has done in many other racing sports.

This is an awesome race here in CO and you can have a blast riding it for fun with you buddies on 5 & 6 inch bikes as well. Thanks to all who contributed.
