Wheel size is up to the individual. Personally, I find 29 to be too big for my riding style and height (5'11"). I know Moto Mike would agree.

As for 650B fading away....I doubt that very much.

The 1970's: No knee pads, helmets, brakes, or over cautious soccer mom's. It's just how we rolled...

I am seeing a lot of prototype 650b wheeled bikes popping up here and there and have also read a few interveiws from bike company people stating that 650b is going to be the next big thing in MTB's and will probably end up being the norm after the dust settles.

It's the happy medium between 29" and 26" and that makes a lot of sense to someone like me who is still on the fence about a 29" wheel.

Are there any advantages to the 650B vs 29er wheel? I just don't see the point of throwing another wheel size out there on mountain bikes. 650B just seems like something that will fade away eventually...

Thoughts?

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.
