Ok, I can make a suggestion. After sitting behind a computer for 13 years, I bought a Rockhopper 29er this week. I rode most everything out there with my 8 year old son today, and I can say everything I have read about 29ers was true. I was able to stay in the saddle and crank up some of the narlyist sections with those big 29s. I drank the 29er koolaid and it is good!:thumbsup:
Well, I live just up the road from JBP and ride there several times a week. I run tubeless pythons on both my 29er and 26er. Almost all my friends run the same. I think it's the perfect tire. It is extremely sensitive to pressure, however, especially tubeless. A couple of psi make all the difference in the world for handling.
Speaking of Brooks makes me ill. They are the worst customer-oriented company in the cycling business I have ever encountered. They refused to recondition or refund my $350 Ti saddle when it deformed due to excessive sweat exposure. In Texas. Friends, Lance and I ride ride the same darn trails and routes in Austin as everyone else.
Brookes is a broken company with terrible customer relations. I implore your to do business with anyone else. FSA, Terry, and FSA come to mind as quality alternatives.
