Please don't yell at me for this thread. I'm sure it has been covered. But, what are the advantages and disadvantages of a 29er. I've been a road rider for many years. I've ridden mountain bikes but, not very seriously. I'm riding a rigid bike and getting beat up pretty bad. So, now that I getting in to mountain biking a bit more, I'm thinking of buying a new modern bike.
I really have a hardtail in mind. Someone suggested that I look at the 29ers. Not knowing what there all about, I thought I'd ask.
Thanks for your comments,
