    Hey, I bought Igor’s last bike (26″ FS) – he takes good care of his stuff.

    I think it’s fair to say the bike depends more on the rider than the trails. You will see fast guys on FS, Hardtail, Rigid, with or without gears, and any wheel size. I will say, I found the FS is more comfortable and faster than my old 26” hardtail (both weigh about the same). A larger-wheel hardtail might be faster, and for the right rider with good back strength, it might be more enjoyable as well.

    Hey Igor, that looks like a nice ride – out of curiosity, why the change to smaller wheels? did you find the 29’er less maneuverable or slower steering?
