29ers have being around for awhile now. Long enough to stay i reckon and with more and more support for the platform every production year consumers are provided with more and more options. They are supposedly faster on the flats and downhills as their bigger wheels keep momentum better and through technical sections provide riders with more confidence. All good things i believe but until i try it i will stop preaching.
This 2011 bike looks pretty good though and all the parts although not high-end makes for a very nice “trail” build.
