I don't think you understand.

I agree. However Gee rides with his weight more over the back wheel, but still has the forks firmer than the shock.

Those 6 people would be in the top 14 on 27.5 too but they are pushing 29 for the sponsors. hart used to be killing it now that he's on 29 that seems to have stopped so obviously they aren't making everyone faster.

I'm with Loic. Make the max wheel size 27.5 for UCI DH racing and stop making the tracks straight smooth jump lines.

I'm pulling for Gwin, Loic and anyone else on a 27.5 this weekend.

This honestly kind of scares me. Loic is one hell of a competitor, and it would suck to have someone as passionate as him walk away from the sport. I know he has been outspoken on this 29er vs. 27.5 argument, and I have to imagine there are other...more

The F1 comparisons are nice to hear, and make the F1 paddock sound like the ultimate thing, but they have regulations galore. Specifically in wheels/tires. Years back they even had dimension rules, back when there were multiple tire suppliers....more

Are you saying that DH shouldn't be close, competitive, and entertaining?

F1 is just one example of a highly regulated technical sport. Pretty much every sport in the world that uses some kind of equipment has regulations, be it motor sport or lawn...more

He's the only one (so far) who has the balls and articulation to make decent points. Which is even more because SPEZ is a 29r crazy company.

A race full of of 29r bikes...?..somehow i feel much less interested in following DH coverage. This is from someone who's looked at every WC Vital slideshow ever.

I dont get why everyone in the comments is so into 29 for dh when repeatedly actual WC racers say they don't want them. Maybe we should listen to the guys that actually ride the bikes.... danny said he didn't want to switch, brook Macdonald and loic and all in vital interviews and sure more feel the same. so many keyboard jockeys telling top 10 wc riders what they should be riding when 99.9% of you guys haven't even touched a 29dh bike.

I rode a $8500 29er enduro bike and HATED IT! Agree with everything Loic said. Riding a 29er is like riding down a waterslide. So boring. A 27 bike is so much more playful. It's like going down white water rapids on a kayak.

It does make sense. While yes you might crash more on your 27.5 because your getting loose and wild they will be less dangerous crashes because your going slower. So yes you may crash less on a 29 but when you do it will probably be more serious....more

because F1 has tons of restrictions, including tires.

Loic's the truest dude out there. Props for not selling out.

I think the problem is this will start giving larger riders advantages. yes the larger wheel sizes fit larger people better but they also roll over things better. So do we make obsticals bigger? But then even if 27.5 fits the rider better they are at a loss and almost have to jump up in size. I think everyone needs to be on the same wheels. 27.5 should be the limit.
