This is awesome. I feel such a wimp after swearing off XC when I was in my mid 40's.

All of the above is the same thing everyone worried about with 26 moving to 275. The difference being that this time around 29 has actually been used for several years now in tight, tech, slow, muddy conditions. It's a fairly known quantity, look no...more

You sound hypocritical Loic. You're OK with the suspension constantly improving, OK with carbon prototype everything, OK with an increase from 26 to 27.5, OK with the heaps of technology that keep air inside your tires despite what you do to them, but...more

One of the best things about MTB racing (XC and DH) is the lack of regulations on the bikes from the UCI. The lack of regulations is what makes MTB racing what it is, and has allowed this sport to evolve with different types of bikes, suspension used...more

It's almost like we've learned no lesson from the whole 275 entering DH debates of 2013/14. It'll look shit, can't handle tight tracks, will ruin DH racing, not as much fun, I won't watch it anymore, there should be a UCI regulation, it's only a tiny...more

I love that trail. The Leaping Lizard was my first DH race back in the late nineties.

I just wanted to say that I really have been appreciating the thoroughness and detail of your reviews. Brandon and Steve have been nailing it in particular with really thoughtful analysis of how the bikes perform and why that is.

The problem is if you limit the wheel size you are then giving the advantage to the smaller and lighter riders who fit the 27.5 platform better. What is next limiting everyone to flat pedals because clips give you more power, everyone has to run 165mm cranks and...more

"the DH bike market doesn't seem to be mature and diverse enough to support multiple wheelsizes." Don't you see ultimately one or two wheel sizes emerging as the winners? Like what's happening in trail / enduro bikes. This takes time, give it a year ... more ยป

This nails it. Likewise, does anyone care that people use different wheel sizes in enduro? Nope.
