...I too can confess to looking at 29ers...


Rode a friend's Spesh 29er Hardtail....was actually very good!


There were even "retro-folk" at Mayhem saying 29 is the new 26!!

Well, ignoring the fact Trek released a 69'er some time back in the late '00s - but you were definitely second!

The dale was a 46er or a 64er. It's worth a google for 69ers (fnarr) as it seems to work well on some full sussers - particularly the klein mantra which was notorious for stink bugging.
