Bigger Is Better!!!

The evolution of the mountain bike continues on with the 29er wheel. It is basically a bulked up road bike sized wheel with a wider rim and big ol' tire. Bigger wheels and tires don't just make you cooler but they can make you faster too. They roll through rock gardens faster, corner with more confidence, climb with more traction due to the increased size of the tire that is on the ground and even soften up the ride on rough trails. 29er's are great for cross country riding and they really shine when used to build single speed mountain bikes.  Check out my single speed Vassago Jabberwocky with rigid fork.
