waiting for sram's pre-production answer. i love the honesty vital. it makes your reviews far more valuable. for that price, you can get some seriously blingy wheels and with less gray area in the warranty.

In my experience anything over 30mm internal just adds drag, quite noticeably for a light weight rider. We did rolling tests and the 35mm rims created a lot of drag with similar tyres on smaller rims.
I wasn't able to get the WT tyres a few months back so I went back to ~30mm rims. Same effect of WT tyres having less drag and less unsprung and rotational weight. Bigger isn't always better.
I like what Maxxis have done with the WT tyres (though I haven't tried them) but they seem like an answer to a problem that needn't exist and can be solved by just not running ridiculously wide rims.

Last I heard they had a May/ April ETA for the new Capra (redesign) but now I'm wondering if they've pushed it back to 2018.

When it stops being a bicycle and becomes something else then we have an issue. Until then it should be fair game. There's nothing dangerous about 29" wheels, I see no reason for restrictions. I am dumbfounded by the notion "why bother l, when everyone's ... more »

When do we draw the line? Never. Why would we want lines?

The only arguments I see against 29er wheels in racing seem to come not from a practical point of view but are born out of the stigma attached to 29" wheels. How on Earth '29ers are gay' became a thing in a sport that should be full of young, forward ... more »

Big wheels for big guys/ small for small guys is not a thing. They have the same pros and cons no matter what your size. What does matter is your riding style and just quite simply whether you suit the bigger wheels or not. I believe 29er wheels may ... more »

Although the sticker says Debonair, that looks like an HV can. A review of the Mega 290 on PB says that they have been speccing the bike with an HV can after finding it to be a better fit for the bike than the Debonair can.
