Opinion: Calm Reflections of Big-Wheeled Panic
@bman33: I think we are generally on the same page. My original point was that it would seem like an odd decision for Santa Cruz to make Luca ride a 29 if testing had shown that he wasn't as fast on 29's. Since it would seem to benefit SC more to have their riders going as fast as they can. If that statement is true, then Luca is riding a 29 because testing showed he was faster on 29. I personally have no idea what happens behind the scenes, Im just trying to employ common sense. I saw Luca's interview and, while I understand that its gotta get old people implying that you're going to post a fast time because of the bike and not your skills, these guys should pretty much be expecting it.

Opinion: Calm Reflections of Big-Wheeled Panic
@bman33: Let me recap for you: OP : Lucky for us, Luca Shaw (Syndacate team) stated on the RedbullTV interview (before it's run) that he doesn't think 29" wheels are the game changer: he told us clearly that it's the rider who makes the difference, not the wheel size. Me: Thats all well and good, but if there is no truth to the 29 then why is Luca riding one? You: he is paid to that is why Me: Ill stick with the most non tinfoil hat explanation personally. That team testing has shown an appreciable benefit in performance of 29s and the riders are sick of fielding questions that imply that the only reason for their good performance is the bike instead of their skills. An understandable reaction, but one the riders should have been prepared for. All directly quoted. Have a nice day.

@bman33: You're the one claiming the the Santa Cruz riders are only riding 29's because they're paid to and not because there is a tangible benefit dipshit. Not me.

@bman33: So Santa Cruz is forcing its riders to run 29's with no tangible or appreciable benefit to performance.... If it turns out that Santa Cruz riders start losing because 29's are inferior that will work out great for them. Ill stick with the most non tinfoil hat explanation personally. That team testing has shown an appreciable benefit in performance of 29s and the riders are sick of fielding questions that imply that the only reason for their good performance is the bike instead of their skills. An understandable reaction, but one the riders should have been prepared for.

It's Alive: Santa Cruz Reveals the V10 29er
@NWuntilirest: 6'6 here and riding a XXL 2017 Trek Fuel 29er. Feels like it was freaking made for me and the wheels look and feel totally proportional to the bike and my body size. The V10 would be boss as feck for us no doubt.

Canyon Sender - Review
Isnt this like the 3rd review of a high caliber bike in which the reviewers pointed to the X2 as a problem? The air version that is.
