Interbike Preview: Two Carbon Bikes from Ellsworth
@deeeight You seriously have done a disservice to my impression of this site. I don't think you fully understand how important it is to maintain respect for PinkBike readers. Not to mention you could have brought people over to your line of thinking if you had just framed it in a more respectful way. I moderate, so I understand the frustration that can arise from comments at times. However, it takes showing respect to receive it back. Sure I get upset and start typing snarky responses to people sometimes. I don't ever actually post them, though. Being a moderator means being the face of the site. Putting your own frustrations and ego over the best interests of the site is exactly the opposite of what you should be doing. Even your good points are now shrouded by your lack of tact. The fact that your are still arguing Ellsworth's benefits, or PinkBike's demographics, proves you really don't understand what this disagreement is about. Arguing the legalities of free speech on an internet forum? Saying that readers should just shut up and look in the mirror before posting, because this is a FREE site? Pardon my honesty, but you have no business being a moderator of this or any site.

What an absolutely unprofessional response from a moderator... I own two business, yet I'm not throwing around money willy nilly for no reason. Insinuating that people who don't buy these bikes don't have jobs is childish. It actually turns me off to reading articles on this site when moderators act like that.

Opinion: 26 vs 27.5 vs 29-inch Wheels
I don't care as long as I get some of that 6-APB you were hinting at.

The New Banshee Rune - One Bike to Rule Them All
The new Pacenti Mega Moto is a 2.4". That's currently the largest 650b I know of. It has a diameter of 28", or 712mm. It is significantly larger in diameter than any 26" tire out there. Look at this picture- The Mega Moto is on the left, the Neo Moto is in the center, and the quasi moto on the right. Saying that you will not feel a difference between it and a 26" tire is just plain incorrect.

What's with all the 650b bashing? Nobody is forcing you to buy it! I've rode all three, and yes it makes a difference. Saying that you can get the same diameter with a 26" and wider tires is ridiculous. The ride dynamics are totally different, and the weight difference is significant. Going to 29" doesn't make sense for me, since the wheels are weaker, the wheelbase is longer, and the geometry just isn't what I want. The 650b wheel size works better for the trails I ride. If you try one and disagree, then stick with the 26". Why dictate what's best for me?

Not for rocky square-edged trails like where I ride in AZ. 29er really does roll over them much better. It's just too big for my taste, and the geometry trade-offs are too much. This one, with the perfect geometry that I am looking for, with 650b wheels, would ride like a dream for me! For other tail types I would agree with you. The crazy square-edged rocky trails behind my house, it's worth it in my opinion.

Thursday Randoms - Eurobike 2012
It's not like they are taking away our other options though. More choice just means better tools for different situations. I for one am interested in the 27.5 wheel size. I live in Arizona where it's extremely rocky, but I still want longer travel. 29er bikes do not, and will not, give me the travel and geometry I want. Sure they roll over the square edges a lot better than a 26in, but I'm not willing to accept the trade offs. Now a 160mm travel 650B bike sounds like it would fit my request perfectly. That does not mean that I am going to be forced to change from my 26in wheels, but now I will have the option to pick what works best for me. I don't see this as an issue.

I'm half Norwegian, but I've never been there, and I live in Arizona. So basically I'm not Norwegian...
