I won't stuff around. I'm not likely to try one inside the next 5 years. However, is there anywhere in Australia, Adelaide in particular, that has 29ers you can test ride?

Cannot say for certain whether he has a shop carrying his gear in SA but Shannon (MTBPrecision) is the Aussie distributor for Niner, Ventana, Moots and Black Sheep.
I know he has a few shops over here that carry his gear so he may be able to point you in the right direction for a test ride through them or else he may have sold a 29er to someone close to you.

Nope you will find that a lot of the info you get from this forum is about that useful.
Get onto Shannon and he will help you I am sure.

Not many here in Oz, not too many at all.

Shannon at Mtbprecision, Thylacine cycles, Cheeky Monkey for Surly.. 29'ers are very scarce down under.


I still have the only 29'er that I have ever seen on the trails where I ride. I have never seen another here.

Rainman you need to get up to sunny brissie. 29er's are breeding like rabbits. Ride at Daisy hill on any given Saturday and your sure to run across at least one.

It worries me that 29ers are big in Brizzy. It's a clear indication that the concept is rubbish.

Interestingly there are some of us up here who think the same about your bikes. ;)
