I do remember, anecdotally, when I raced 36-40 (age class) cruiser there was a guy who would show up occasionally on a FS 26er and totally get worked.

And how hard would this be one a 29er?!
No offense meant, but a 29er would get totally schooled on a short course. Same goes for 4 cross. You could certainly have fun with a 29er on a BMX track (change your tires please) or even a pump track, I guess. Really, it sounds like fun.anthony_coley said:Is anyone out there racing a 29er in the BMX cruiser class? I was watching some videos of guys racing 26ers and it looked like loads of fun.
