Every time a rider sits on a niner for the first time God kills a puppy. I do not want to be responsible for killing puppies.

650b, I'm ready to drink the kool aid.

the thing that worries me most about getting a 650b is will they be like 29ers when they first came out? Awkward and not really built all that well? Are they going to take a while for the egg heads to figure out all the geometry and suspension and etc etc etc etc quirks? Or are they going to hit the nail on the head with the designs fresh out of the gate? Should we wait a few generations to work out the quirks? Even though the mags and web sites say a particular bike is awesome, I'm sure they are both sitting in with the manufactures having hand job parties, so who knows really how truthful and objective the reporting is? (ie- mtn bike fiction)

It's about time someone made a rubber boot to keep the crud out of the seat tube and post.
Nice bike too.

What are the advantages of riding a mountain bike anyway?
Staying at home, lying on the couch is much more comfortable

We need some 650B tire choices, pronto!!! The pickings are pretty slim right now.

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
