There’s a lot of debate going on about which mountain bike wheel size is best, and it’s going to continue for quite some time.
Yes, 29ers roll easier and make a lot of aspects of mountain biking easier. Yes, 26ers are more maneuverable and in many ways are still the most fun wheel size to ride. And lets not forget the 27.5, or 650B, hailed as the great compromise between both…
But, is there something you’re forgetting?
Before you think you’re missing out and being ‘held back’ by your current wheel size, consider the most important factor that affects your performance on the trails:
Don’t let your wheel size become your excuse. Enjoy the bike you’re riding right now, embrace the challenge of getting better and work hard at it.
Ultimately it’s you, your fitness, your mountain bike skills and your attitude, not wheel size, that determine how much better you can become.
Have a think for a moment. What skills can you work on to become a better mountain biker?
