I'll stick with my 28er, a Townsend Hybrid i can shoehorn 28 x 1.75's into.

For some strange reason I find the bigger a wheels diameter I want a narrower tyre thus 2.4's on a 26er look good to me but the same on a 29er dont :?

Anyhoo I'll wait untill I can afford a 36er :lol:

Kind of agree, the asthetics are just not right IMHO :roll:

Agree also, if you ride big fat tyres you need a big frame. Anything with a 20" frame or less to me just looks proportionally and aethetically wrong in 29er guise.

Grumpy and stuck in my ways, YES :lol:

Aesthetic tips from Gazz and Velo don't carry too much weight to be honest :twisted:
