Leogang Sees Biggest 26TRIX Final in 12-Year History
@Keystone08: Note: -I am critiquing the runs rather than trolling the comment section. -I have honestly seen rogatkin do that run + 6 more things at rotorua. (he needs to change his trick arsenal a little, so that it doesn't just look like whips and flips.) -Diego got 1st this time... (Im sorry you're not able to get over it.) I am saying this as a person who enjoys watching both riders.

Leogang Sees Biggest 26TRIX Final in 12-Year History
@matteosignorelli: yeah, that is sort of how i had it broken down. Flip whip bar is actually one of the most insane moves you can do... so many things to get perfect. Double whips should count as negative points after the first time executed... they are so ugly!

Leogang Sees Biggest 26TRIX Final in 12-Year History
In my opinion the reasons he wasn't scored higher are: -Double whip repeat. (its just an ugly trick, even if you throw it in a 360) -Some sketchy landings... cased 2 jumps. -Repetition, the judges have seen this run (or very similar) from Rogatkin before. I think both 1st and 2nd runs had the same relative difficulty, but Diego had better execution on most of the features.

Ask Pinkbike: 29er DH Bikes, Crankbrothers Pedals, and Norco Range vs Sight
@BeerGuzlinFool: 29 inch wheels are clearly faster than the smaller varieties. So the idea is to go as big as possible, while still including the majority of riders... I think we all understand, that is sort of change we will see the larger brands push in the next couple of seasons. My point is: There should be room for different wheel sizes, based on the application of the wheel. there are too many distinct disciplines in the MTB sport to only have 29ers.

Ask Pinkbike: 29er DH Bikes, Crankbrothers Pedals, and Norco Range vs Sight
@WAKIdesigns: Thats an interesting sentiment. What about the slopestyle group? they probably want to keep a smaller wheel right? I cant really see Anthony Messere running a 29er at rotorua... Maybe one of the taller riders though.. But would the wheels even be able to handle that sort of stress? You think a 29"wheel can take the rampage gaps and drops? (Im skeptical, but idk) These sort of questions confound me, before I even start thinking about the trail bikes.

@BeerGuzlinFool: I have to disagree. I think you're an XL at 6'3", but imagine if you were 5'3" and had to ride a 29 on an XS... the 5'3' version of you would probably wonder why 29er feels so large and wagon-like. However, if you put a 5'3" person on a 26, and a 6'3" person on a 29," I think you would probably end up with a similar rider/bike proportion. That is why I think wheel size is still a pretty valid debate.

People can be between 3-7 feet tall, so what is the best overall wheel size? ... I think it depends on the rider.

Norco Sight C 9.2 – Review
I love 29ers until I think about spinning in the air... Still want this bike though.
