Ride,Smile, Pedal Damn it
I have a 29er and two 26ers. I ride them often, but have a hard time adjusting from 29 to 26. Any others having this trouble?
Different size wheels. Agreed. It's seems like a non problem to me. OP should get rid of one or the other wheel size bikes. No problem. Or just ride them each on apropriate terrain that suits them. Again, no problem. I have 26 and 650 ht and fs, 29 ht and soon a 29 fs. Mix it up.no nope uh uhh. you may want to clarify what your concern is exactly. does your back hurt or are you having a hard time handling the bikes on terrain?
Subject has been beaten to death.Anybody making 29'ers that will fit a 5'5 rider? At this height is it generally just best to stick with the 26?
No kidding. I just picked up a Tranny (that dosn't sound right) after 3 years of only riding 29ers, and yeah I wish I had done it sooner. It's pretty incredible. I think it's nice to have a choice between 29" and 26".I have been riding 29ers all year and switched back to a 26er hardball. I absolutely love it! Accelerates much quicker, nimble, blah, blah! I am only 5'7" and I find I fit 26ers better. More stand over. I work at a bike shop and I feel that 29ers are better suited to tall guys. As well, I think you get get away with less skill on 29er and ride faster. I'm not saying that's a bad thing. You can just get up and go, the corner, the descending, climbing is all easier on a 29er. If I could find a 29er that is like my Ibis Tranny, with some Easton haven carbon wheels I would be interested! Bottom line is ride what you have and have fun!
