Last year when I took vacation I took my KHS dual suspension mtb bike and took one inch Ritchey slicks with me for the road rides. This year I took my Voodoo 29er hardtail and also took 25 c road tires for the road rides.
Although I didn't ride as much as last year and only got in one good mountain bike ride, I can say I much prefer my new bike to the one I took last year.
Off road, my conclusions are pretty much the same as when I left since I have hundreds of off road miles on the Voodoo. On road the bike works like a dream. Nice riding position, hardtail for climbing efficiency, and the larger wheels make the descents much more fun and confidence inspiring.
On one of my road rides I did it with my MTB tires and although not quite as nice as road tires I did do a 19K climb with them which climbed over 4500 feet.

Those wheels look really really big.
Well they look so big because I am so small!

I ran into a farmer who years ago got hooked on the big wheel idea. I think his tires are not only wire beaded but all wire!:eekster:

I have often thought that a 29er mountain bike would be the best "if I could only have one bike" bike. One bike two wheel sets and it wouldn't be that bad. I agree.:thumbsup:

Actually I only have one wheelset. My CR 18 rims fit both my 2.3 inch MTB tire and my 25 c road tires. I have done the 2 wheelset thing before but it doesn't take much longer to just swap out tires and then you don't have to adjust brakes and gears.
