I read that article too.  I think it's a little premature to speculate on the "death of the 26" hardtail."

Nope.   ;D   If "they" ever proclaim FS as being dead...well I'll just have to be a rebel and continue riding one.  :P

Getting defensive about your upcoming Thai lady-boy purchase?

I wonder what luck I would have calling back country and trying to get the deal on the titanium truth that they were offering on the blow out site

I don't see it on their site any more so maybe they finally sold out of them, but they do have a bunch of Pinarello Paris frames for $1400...gotta love those curves on that frame.

Well, I guess Noah is a slightly tougher sounding name than Paris...but still doesn't sound as cool as saying, "I'm on the Damocles".

Oh no...  FORUM POLICE, please block this thread now.  I warned you!

Why aren't you all mentioning what the article also says.  It said that 6 or 7 of the top 10 positions on the Men's pro cat had 29ers.  Hmmm, I guess they had a sale on red clown noses too...

To each its own I guess.  I love my 24'er!   ;D
