I don't like forums or short chainstays. I'm good with pretty much everything else except Sram...but Rockshox is ok.

Ask Pinkbike: 29er DH Bikes, Crankbrothers Pedals, and Norco Range vs Sight
Ermagerd the industry tuk arrrr jerrrbs. Calm down baby, have a piece of cheese. I doubt very much that the 27.5" dh bike is going anywhere (fast hehehehhehehe). But srsly now...wait and see what happens this season before you get all doomsday. And for those who say "why not just skip to 32, 35" or whatever. Well why not skip to 40000 inch? Cus it won't work dufus. It's still debateable whether 29ers work better in competition than 27.5. Everyone calm down and if it's the money of a new bike your worried about - go hit the buy sell. I haven't bought a new bike for 4 years, I've had about 8 bikes and I've been able to ride some awesome machines thanks to rich guys kindly taking the hit on depreciation. If you want something to moan about get into politics where shit is really real.

Ask Pinkbike: 29er DH Bikes, Crankbrothers Pedals, and Norco Range vs Sight
@WAKIdesigns: I agree completely. For me personally when I felt the poor attributes of the 29er down my local jump trails I decided to swap it for something that is actually 'playful' - a short travel 27.5" bike because I hardly ever ride or race real trails anymore (ironically I'm just fitting dh casings for a trip to fort bill next week :-S )I've heard many people say (inc Bryceland) that 29er 'enduro' bikes feel like dh bikes and I'd tend to agree that they have many similar traits. I've yet to try a 'modern geo' short-mid travel 29er OR a full on DH29 but I'd like to.

This old chestnut. In my limited experience on long and slacked out 29ers (not ridden a full dh one) I found that the gains in speed, confidence plus the benefit of way less fatigue meant I was having more fun. The best thing was that you could land a 30ft huck into a rock garden and know you'd be fine, they just roll so well. The reason I go rid of it was the realisation that I live so close to some awesome freeride spots and the 29er just didn't do it like a 26/27.5. If I still had time to ride 'real' mtb trails I'd be on a 29er for sure, maybe I'll even go back. If you spend a lot of time on jump trails then a 29er might piss you off as it did me. But otherwise (imo) they're pretty much more 'fun' on everything. And we shouldn't forget you can ride longer and harder before you need to go to bed. What's not fun about that?

@mikekazimer: 29er DH bike are a Pinkbike conspiracy to get more comments. You can get a lot of comments for a few boxes of biltong.
