The March issue of Mountain Bike Action will be hitting news stands soon. In it you will find........
"The Controversy Rages On 26 vs. 29 or split the difference", referring to 27.5 (650B).
With FOX's annocment that they will produce a 27.5 fork and rumors of a "BIG" bike brand will also be offering 27.5 wheeled bike into their line. Have 27.5 arrived. What will we see for mid-2012 and 2013.
In April of 2010 MBA "Wheels Of Change" they took a neutral approach and didn't pick a favorite wheel size. "It still comes down to rider preference and riding condition.
All that is true.
July 2011 MBA review of the Jamis Dakar XCT 650B2 glowing review. Excerpt from buying advise..."Understand it's a wheel size that may not find widespread acceptance" full review below.
I'm curious to see what MBA have to say in the March issue.
I will a agree it's comes down to rider preference and riding conditions. Having experience with 26, 29, and 27.5. They all have their merits. if I had to choose one bike for where I ride I would then say..........
