Just wanted to point out that 29er's use the same exact 700c rim size (622mm bead seat diameter) as hybrids, cross, cyclocross and road bikes.

In case anyone:

- Forgot this simple fact
- Is not aware of this simple fact because:
----- half the bike industry seems to not be
----- while the other half fails to mention it
- Needs slicks for their 29er
- Needs knobbies for their hybrid
- Is annoyed by noobs telling them about their awesome new glorified hybrid (aka: 29er)
- Is asked why you still ride "antiquated" 26's......

Now you've gone and done it. You've pushed all the tattoo sleeve/legged rigid ss 29er riders off of 29ers. Now we'll have to endure trails full of this:

You, sir, are an idiot.
The same "logic" says DH bike = paperboy bike just because they share a rim diameter.
It does not matter.
Just enjoy bikes...all bikes.
Now go crawl back under your rock.
