Ask Pinkbike: 29er DH Bikes, Crankbrothers Pedals, and Norco Range vs Sight
@mdhorner: I only got to hit the old set year before it was rebuilt. Havent been back since so Im long overdue! But I dont doubt it. Your gfs account made it fishy, different bikes than mentioned. If youre a local you prob ride w some friends out there and one was on an old highball or whatever that first SC 29 fs bike was and was ripping down aline. You locals rip that place.

Error on mobile I cant edit... At any rate. The concern people have is just having one wheelsize and a plus27.5 that nobody really wants. Ive ridden em all. Worked at a shop for a while so had 29ers. Cx bikes. Road bikes. Etc. Prefer 27.5 for *me* and would be pretty upset if Im funneled into a size that makes me true wheels any more than I have to....

@MrLynch: in that time there were 26" FS bikes like the SB66, and a whack of bikes that sold just fine. Only outsold due to the lower end market, xc market, and hardtails. 26 had no issues selling back when the transition was taking place. It was a move decided by Giant and a few others in Taiwhan. This was documented by several people at the time who attended the meeting and posted about it on RM. People were in fact buying bikes like the Nomad, SB66 and the slew of bikes that turned into 27.5 the following year, forcing new consumers onto the size regardless of consumer wants. It was an industry move to increase sales in a market segment that was slowing down for Giant and the other two brands (while it was no problem selling bikes for SC, yeti, transition, etc). Period. I dig all of the sizes and see all of the benefits to each depending on use case and rider.

@abtcup: because it's not that cut and dry, and 5 second gaps on 2 minute courses wasn't the result for everyones testing. Trail, rider, bike, etc will all have affect on time. It's going to be faster in rougher areas more than likely however, but as we see with enduro, both sizes win. Thing is, DH is generally faster more wide open courses, so the advantage will be there. Should be an interesting DH season.

Rumble in the Czech Jungle: Nove Mesto XC World Cup - U23 Women and Elite Men Race Recap
@sevensixtwo: bingo. Everyone here stating their preferences because "ive got a long climb" seems to forget they have zero chance of keeping up with these guys. They run this gearing because they are stonger than most of us. Simple as that. They dont need the bailout gears some seem to rely on to climb. You arent gonna win these races showing up spinning a 30x50 up climbs. So comparisons to us is moot as best.
