Truvativ Announces New Carbon DH Bar, Direct Mount Stem
@MitchThompson89: Like another debatable standard being discussed recently there's little evidence the 35mm standard is better, and many prefer not to use it (look at any DH rider sponsored by Renthal)

@deafdaddy: If in doubt look at the fork lowers - Rock Shox 29er forks aren't branded as Boxxers

Five Things We Learned in Leogang
@cmkneeland: They might, that's what scares me. I liked 26, and have found 27.5 to be a good middle ground, but 29 is too far for me. The industry did take away 26, but ultimately WE are to blame - as we may be again. How many people do you think actually bought the Session Park / Kona 167 / Transition Suppressor?

Five Things We Learned in Leogang
@ov3r1d3: Given Minnaar's success in previous years on 26 and 27.5 bikes even that's debateable.

Finals Result: Fort William DH World Cup 2017
@tuumbaq: I reckon you make a tonne of sense. I personally have nothing against 29ers in DH, in fact I'm stoked Minnaar found a bike that with 29er wheels that seems to fit him spot on. But to tell us they're significantly superior so we should all have one is bollocks. If you like a 29er, awesome, glad you're having fun. But I have ridden multiple bikes of multiple wheelsizes (sometimes on the same type of chassis) and I prefer 27.5, so don't tell me it's inferior.

@Maverickdh00: Nah man, no way this Minnaar guy would've otherwise won, must have been the 29er doing all the work #sarcasm

@abbottt1: 3rd place was 27.5 with a massive visible mistake, costing 2-3 seconds at least including massive loss of momentum. All we can take from this is that the 29ers have so far proved to work well, but they're sure as sh*t not "consistently 7 seconds faster literally everywhere" like so-called testing would have you believe...

The Highland Fling: Practice – Fort William DH World Cup
These new DH 29ers are starting to look actually quite normal... *sees photo of Pom Pon*... maybe not all of them.

Tech Randoms – Fort William DH World Cup
As much as I dislike the very sudden push for everyone to have a 29er, I do love the almost F1-esque prototype nature of all these bikes - that Trek is pretty damn hot in raw carbon. Also loving the gold Ohlins, simply for its motorsport heritage!
