29er’s no longer going to be made – The Web Monkey Speaks: Please Don’t Kill The 29er

I’d only just accepted 29ers as being proper mountain bikes, and now this?!

Kite*Surf*Bike*Rambling

i love my Lynskey 29er – it is the most versatile and fastest hard tail I have owned ….

this from DIRT

I’ll just cut to the chase here: If you are a product manager in the bike industry, I’m begging you, don’t kill off the 29ers in your line-up.

I understand that 26 is dead. I know that you could make the greatest mountain bike in the world and not sell a single one of them if they were equipped with “old” 26er wheels because 650b/”27.5” is now Jesus Chris’s Official wheelset of choice. I get that. I’m not really happy about it, but I’m a realist and I understand that the battle for the hearts of the masses has been won. 650b has effectively kicked sand in the face of 26 and strolled off with his girlfriend.

Fine.

But let’s not also kill off 29ers. Not yet. Please.
