I've got the bug! Being 6'7 and weighing in at 290 on top of being a former collegiate offensive lineman with bad knees has led me to my new love of riding my Specialized Rockhopper for exercise and thrill.
I bought my bike because it was the biggest and best combination for my price range from a local bike shop. But during this time, several years ago, I never heard of a 29er.
Should I invest in a 29er? What are the pros and cons? Are they intended for particular applications?
