I was talking to a guy at the LBS and I was talking to him about 29ers. We discussed the pros and cons. He said that 26 wheels are actually stronger than 29 inch wheels. And I saw on this site a guy twisted his spokes. Does this make your wheel that much stronger? How does one go about doing this? I was also told that there bigger/stronger tires made for 26 wheels that are made heavier riders, if there is what brands should I focus on (wheels and tires)? Thanks peoples.
