Video: 29er mountain bikes – stability

How the geometry of 26in and 29in bikes affects handling

Doddy discusses how a 29er feels more stable over the rough stuff

In the fourth video of our 26 vs 29er video series, we look at how 29er mountain bikes can give you more stability over rough terrain and through turns.


The series stars Mountain Biking UK and What Mountain Bike magazine gurus Doddy and Justin Loretz, examining the differences between 29in- and 26in-wheeled bikes with the aim of dispelling some of the myths and rumours surrounding the two. We’ve already brought you shorts on how 29ers give you more for less and how they can handle tricky terrain better.


Stay tuned for more videos in the series to be shown on BikeRadar throughout the weekend.
