They’re now preferred by taller riders because the compromise in frame geometry to fit the larger wheels don’t adversely affect handling as much in the larger frames as it does in the smaller frame sizes XS~M, but that’s like saying gonorrhoea is the best of all the sexually transmitted diseases.

29ers are good for those who upgrade often, as it will fit in nicely when in 2013~14 the US brands trot out something new.

But please, Don’t hate me for my opinion.

Thats right, don't ask for an opinion on a bike from someone who actually owns one, instead ask someone who thinks they know
what they are talking about but clearly have no idea.

Cognitive dissonance is the reason you can't ask a 29er owner.

I own a Monocog 29er
