Video: 29er mountain bikes – dispelling the myths

Our video series aims to settle the 26in/29in debate

Our video series aims to answer some of the questions surrounding 29ers

Seeing as today is the leap day, we thought it was the perfect time to kick-start 29er week on BikeRadar. Throughout the coming days, we’ll be bringing you coverage on the bigger wheeled bikes, including Pro Bike features, tech news and reviews.


Overarching the entire week will be a series of videos starring Mountain Biking UK and What Mountain Bike magazine gurus Doddy and Justin Loretz, examining the differences between 29in- and 26in-wheeled bikes, and hoping to dispel some of the myths and rumours surrounding the two.


Below is an introduction to the series, with part two coming later this afternoon.
