Why do you need to go back?

My 29'er plans are on hold for a bit.

The 700c mtb thing didn't work out either, as the cx tyres rubbed on the adaptors, so it's going to be a cx/mtb.

After that, I'll take another look at 29'ers.

Owned a Mongoose 29er for years that I commuted on, blisteringly quick on the flats but sluggish/long

Toyed with the idea recently but TBH do too much messign about jumping even on my XC bike and I don't think 29er wheels would take to well to that kind of abuse!

Lenz coniued to develop the design and now do 3", 4", 5", 6" and 7" frames, choose your poison.
