All right, I posted this under another topic, but can someone explain to me the appeal of 29ers? I'm not so sure this would handle too well on a track. It seems just a tad big. (Personally, I'd never ride a 26 incher on a track) But these bikes are all the rage now, especially in the mountain bike world. And I noticed Texas Firemans Cruzers make a 29er now.
I have nothing against these bikes, and really it would be really cool to just ride a giant version of a PK Ripper, but I don't understand their functional appeal, especially as it pertains to BMX. Can anyone explaini?
Well said R, I feel the same way. Ok, yeah, it might be fun to ride but to me its not BMX. I suppose if I were well over 6ft and quite heavy, it might be exciting. I still fit at home on a 20" so I guess I don't get it.
