Ive tried a couple with no overwhelming impressions. I still think a good fitting 26 bike is the best bet for me. AM rider at 6 ft 200 lbs. Loved the Trek remedy, wasnt impressed with the Rumblefish or Superfly.
OH GODGilboy said:Not riding a 29r yet and still stuck on those little 26" wheels? That's like trying to ski on old non-shaped skis!
Haha... like Zach ever follows bike racing, frequents mtbr, or cares about anything involving bikes other than the ones he owns... not Zach... try again.dankilling said:Haha....aw, c'mon Zach.....

It's great to be real new as you have lots to explore, and that's half the fun of a new area like mt biking. You fit the size dimensions more than a shorter rider, but not to say shorter riders can't ride 29ersMountainbikerTrek said:I'm about 6'4 or so, I have a Trek with 26 inch wheels and I believe it is a large frame. Does the 29 wheel bike make that much of a difference? 3 inches to me does not sound like it would not matter all that much, or am I missing something?
Remember, real new to this so please ignore the ignorance!
Oh Ya, is that the guy who owns like 5 Redlines, numerous GTs, and Treks? I heard he rides way too much, and races Motos and MTBs too? Somebody tried to stop him once and they got "scared" I know him, he's got lots of friends all over the place.motoman465 said:Congrats on your new purchase! My friend rides a Redline 29r and the thing is reliable as a claw hammer. I was actually thinking of purchasing a Redline in the near future.
