Thats good to hear. Every bike shop I go to the guys are saying 29ers only. Probably cause they are more expensive (fuckers).
These are the ones that I am looking at ( I bumped my price range up a little..)
Trek: 2012 Marlin, 2012 Wahoo
Marin: Bobcat Trail, Bolinas Ridge
Of course, I dont know all the companies to be looking at, but I am going to a couple bike shops this weekend to check some out.
Helmet Question: Full faced or regular helmet?
