Major Payne: I say 27.5 overall for best of both worlds. 29 definitely for cross country and transportation. And 26 for you maniacs who do flips.
Raul Bermudez: All has been said, terrible choice of music
Сергей Каскевич: Гавно , что за тест такой?В одной местности
XMartimboX: I have not tried 29 or 27.5 but I can say something.. whit my old 26 I have kicked the ass too many 29 users by far...
Clady Smith: awful delivery of information. wtf is this?
joel vaughan: No point timing the descent as they all seemed to just be rolling down it
COMB0RICO: I use to be a staunch 26er. Then, I bought my first 29er. The bigger wheel size is not just an improvement, but completely energizes my riding to a new level. A smoother power transfer is the most critical advantage of the bigger wheel.
I'm coming back on all the videos on Google's Youtube to retract my previous comments against the 29er.
Jas Grassi-Hoying: 26 inchers are as gay as christmas
Abraham Luevano: Santa Cruz Tallboy LT owns
akronymus: Music overrides info. Done bad, sorry.
Radnie Danid: waw amazing.very nice.bikers.
eduardo garcia: ..i ride my ROCK RIDER SIX.3 26ER 3×9 everyday to work..i live in a city with climbs and descends and it performs well the way i wanted..
Robert Urban: nonsense comparison - as I see it 26" with wide tyres is best off-road, 29" is better on-road but in straight line only :) so I stick to my 26" for all around performance. Regarding 27.5"...yeah right how about 28.3"....idiotic ideas.
Chris Gibbs: Not a bad comparison, it should be mentioned that a proper Trail/AM 26" will soak up descents with the best geometry for the situation, if descending is on your list of importance. On the same note, the longer wheelbase of the 27.5 is because it's a 27.5. If the 26 wasn't a XC geo, it wouldn't have a shorter wheelbase. This makes it the snappiest at turning, which the 27.5 and 29 can't accomplish. If we are talking XC style, 26 is best at flowy, 29 at flat and distance, 27.5 at I can't pick or ride too much of each.
Evan Gorczynski: I ride trails that have lots of slippery roots and wet hard pack year round and my 29er way out grips my 26". I came from a BMX so i will admit the 29er is not as agile in the air and in really tight stuff but over all it makes the ride much more enjoyable.
Aydin Karli: 29er hard to claim hills forewer 26
V.I.K: Yesterday got my 29er full-suspension and it feels very different from my last 26er hardtail.I feel like it is a bit slower on ascents or at least harder to pedal,probably due to the extra weight.When it comes to downhill,however,the 29er is just a pleasure to be ridden,especially with rear shock and bigger fork.More speed and confidence.The jumps are a little harder to jump off but I'm not used to this bike yet so hope I improve my technic and become a stronger rider overall!
Tony Rekert: fairly useless comparison - hard to tell which wheels were which.
geaR: i shred on my 29er and 26er.
robkez313: music is so annoying had to mute it
