Shame it's a 29er

I'm just an old school MTB'er and I think that 29" wheels are the worst thing to happen to mountain bikes ever. 27.5" is the biggest that they should ever go *

*Disclaimer - This is just my opinion and i'm not saying 29" wheels don't have their benefits, they just aren't my thing.

Technically 29 inch wheels will just mean less pedalling on a normal flat surface. Not sure i'd want them that big though if i was trying to go off road and get them over stuff.

Good deal. Love my 29er. Took a while to get used to through. Horses for courses

Is this any good, spec/price wise? anything better for similar price? thanks in advance.

For me 26" and 29" should not be compared they're totally different bikes.I bought a 29er 18mths ago and I love it I use it mainly in the summer for light trail and tow paths and the extra distance covered on a good full day of riding is mind blowing.But I would never be with out my 26" which is now my winter bike, I'm currently enjoying riding more technical trails in the mud on that just as much as the 29er in the summer and wouldn't dream of using one for the other.

Looks good and weight is stated at 13.5kg so not bad for the money

Had a quick look round and cant find anything id say was better, if you pay a bit more only real upgrade in spec seems to be cable disks and personally id stick with the v brakes in this price range.

I see, thanks.

I'm thinking of going from 28" hybrid to one of these to help with the winter commute. No off-roading anywhere.

Any thoughts anyone?

Is your commute hilly? This will be quite heavy and hard work compared to a hybrid.

No, quite flat. Just thinking of the snow etc whilst the extra inch would help with covering the distance.

Why not, great for going over tree roots ... Although, they are a bit more cumbersome over technical ground/turns

29ers have 28" wheels 700c tyres are compatable

I'm no expert but I think you are wrong there. Check out the specs on this one for example - 29" wheels.

Yeah ,for some bizarre reason they call them 29" but it includes the tyre ,suppose 28er doesn't have the same ring to it. link for thread on 29er v 700c

Aha! Thanks for clearing that up.

So a 29er wheel is just a wider version of a 700 (or 28") wheel that will fit fatter tyres. As the fatter tyre gives it an inch bigger (external radius) then surely that bigger circumference will still help with covering the distance whilst the extra width will help with snow/ice, no?

correct. 29ers are great for commuting. If you wanted a bombproof bike for a commute of 10 miles or less, these would be ideal. especially if the roads are a bit rubbish/potholed.

£219.99 now.

This comment is the one that made me buy, so thanks. I ordered on Friday and the price went up to £219.99 immediately after, so I assume there was some stock related pricing on this item.

Anyway, delivery is today, will expire the deal. Thanks OP and everyone in this thread who helped twist my arm.
