Which is the best wheel size for a mountain bike? The traditional 26 inch, the 27.5 or the larger 29 inch wheel ?
It's a debate that generate fierce opinions, with strong advocates of all three wheel sizes.. a few words on the 26 inch wheels..with their smaller diameter and shorter spokes, all else being equal, a 26 inch wheel will be stronger, lighter which makes for snappier acceleration. Handling is usually very nimble with little inertia to get in the way of rapid direction changes. However it tend to clatter into bumps and roll less smoothly than the other wheel sizes. our guest at Cape Escape Tours ride 29 wheel sizes #mountain bike.
