Under Nino Shurter. Aint that something...
I disagree. It is both the bike and the rider at any level.Outstanding! Hope to see some photos of those tires soon.
Batty and Pendrel 2nd and 3rd in the women's race (non 650b but still cool)
I know it's the rider, not the bike especially for this level of racing but for my level it's the bike.
And here's a typical one straight out of a 29er thread bashing a guy who's pondering is 29ers the way of the future.Funny I remember reading an almost identical thread when he came in tops on a 29er for the first time. Probably only about a year ago. Things have moved along quickly.
Intuitively, I don't think many folks we predicting that 650b would hold a candle to 29'ers in the XC realm. THe only advantage thing I can think of is slightly lighter - but, then WC XC s all about weight weeniedom.
