Intend doing more MTBing this year. Still riding a 26er, is this acceptable?
I hear those 29ers that everyone guffawed are actually selling really well...

So long as you ride at night and on your own you'll be fine.

That bad eh? I shall test your statement at a trail centre this weekend. I guess flat bars and bar ends will be poo-pooed too??!

This is definitely not the Real DK. He wouldn't have been worrying about what other people think.

Funny things those 29ers, tried one at the weekend I felt very high up. It was better on smooth open tracks but on V technical stuff and narrow twisty windy treey stuff it was a hinderence.

Just has a great day at Thetford, where it seems to have defied the floods and dusty dry single track is abound. 25 miles of dry single track heaven has restored my faith in mtb'ing.
Any dust on the bike blew off on the way home. No washing required whatsoever.

According to Strava I'm 4th fastest round my local trails, that was last summer on my entirely plastic 26"...on my plastic 29" I'm 10th on the second ride in the middle of winter.
The difference is under 4mins.
On the twisty flowing/technical downhill section I'm 5th fastest overall on the 26" and 8th on the 29" the difference being a couple of seconds.
I'm still definitely a three or four bike man...but my best 26" is out and out faster but the 29" is just about as fast with much lower effort required which makes it perfect for 24hr soloing :-)

Its what gives the skills to ride a road bike. Better than a Roadie
