I stopped into a bike shop this afternoon, and it looks like pretty much all the really expensive nice bikes (like over $500) now take 27.5" and 29" wheels? That's CRAZY!!!! They told me 29" wheels came from road/hybird bikes and 27.5" came from wheelchairs..........I've never heard of something so absurd!
Unless it's got a 26" wheel, it's not a mountain bike!!!!
Yeah, I'd totally rather ride that sweet Sportek than that carbon Scott...
Dude, where have you been? This argument happened like 5 years ago. 29ers are here to stay and 27.5's will probably end up replacing 26" wheels in a few years. The advantages are proven and the drawbacks are well worth the efficiency and reduction in rolling resistance.
