26"<700c

Im dissapointed more people dont trick theyre 700c bikes anymore. This 26 inch stuff is silly. I mean its like riding a dj mountian bike with a dissadvantage. All the tricks look small and sad. Get on a bmx bike if you cant trick a 700.
my 2 cents.
whats your thoughts?

I'm on your side, I will barely even watch any footage of people riding 26" bikes anymore. I ride a SE Us Versus them 2012, I might upgrade to a BB17 Serpent frame later on we'll see how things go.

I feel like it's dead in general, I can't watch videos anymore. Everyone I see is some ****** with a helmet riding a skate park in Cali doing the barspins and 180s non stop.

27" and 700c are functional same ish .. kids .. 26" is a different frame requirement.



European Artistic cycling routines are fun to watch , particularly when the riders are Young Women.

Wow thanks for the great info. The discussion was really about the riding style changing from 700c bikes to 26" bikes that resemble dsj park bikes and turning into bmx.
