Sneak Peek: Giant's Boldest Move - Hello 27.5, Goodbye 26 (& 29?)

Update: Catch all the details and our first ride impressions in this slideshow.

Is the 29-inch wheel on the brink of being phased out? Will Sam hold it together? Who's up top at the Enduro World Series? In the midst of the insane event action happening, Giant announces their “boldest move in company history.” The 2014 line of Giant off-road bikes gets kicked into 27.5-inch mode, folks. Aside from the Glory DH and Reign X, not a single 26-inch bike will join the line. They're also beginning to phase out the 29er. Pretty bold, right?
