The rule started because companies in the 90s were making wild Time trial bikes with tiny front wheels and huge back wheels to cut down on drag. (Look up the C-dale rollerblade bike) so the UCI stepped in with the same Wheel size rule but applied it to all disciplines not just Road....more

One of the dumbest rules ever! Hold over from the road bike stuff. It needs to go away.

And personally, I like a 26 front 27.5 (or greater) rear.

I think that all mountain bikers should look at wheel size, like golf clubs. There is now good match for different track conditions & fetures.
Super Ruff 29
Middle ground 27
Super tight and technical 26
Wheal radious will gain benefit based in the trail conditions & features.
just...more

I run an M4 Special Edition setup in the front and the above covered E4's in the rear. Rockin' setup! And just as the article states, the quality, adjustability, and reasonable maintenance processes are top shelf.

From experience... Bedding in the pads properly are critical. Pad material or compound will likely account more for changes in initial bite then physical design.... try EBC green or yellow stuff pads. The E4 calipers do seem to have an issue with dragging pistons, but that's easily solved by the method above and keeping them clean.
