26'' is Not Dead 5

This video was made during the last 6 months on different spots of south of France (Aix en Pce, Marseille, Peynier, Mont Ventoux) and the resort of Chatel. The initial draft of this video was to show that with a 26 inch you can ride what you want, everywhere : enduro, DH, trail or freeride ... what is not the case of a 27.5'' and even less a 29''.

Cette vidéo à été réalisée lors des 6 derniers mois sur différents spots du sud de la France (Aix en Pce, Marseille, Peynier, Mont Ventoux) et la station de Châtel. Le projet initial de cette dernière était de montrer qu’à l’heure ou tout le monde se pose la question de savoir s’il faut passer à un diamètre de roues plus grand, nous voulions montrer qu’au guidon d’un 26'' on peut tout faire, de l’enduro à la dh en passant par le trail, le bowl ou le freeride… Ce qui n’est pas le cas d’un 27.5’’ et encore moins d’un 29’’.

    Love the video! Still planning to get a dialed 650b trail bike in the coming year though.. because just I enjoy riding bikes. The squabbling over wheel size is mildly entertaining I guess. whatever.

    If you're a decent rider, you can any of the three sizes about anywhere you like. Cool edit though

    That's funny. I have two bikes too. A 29 long travel and a 26 dj. They should have used the same bike to prove their point.
