Am riding today in Munising's 4th of July parade with the local bicycle club. Had to decide which bike to ride. My son and his friend went downstairs to check my inventory, and their decision was clear and unanimous: my Gary Fisher Hifi 29er looks too wimpy, and I should ride my 26er Enduro SL. I'm forced to agree. I'd love to ride the 29er. Really. But the kids are right. The Hifi just doesn't have the right "look". So it will be 26-inches just for today.
