29er is a marketing ploy that some madison avenue, huckster-type created
I got a bridge in nyc that I want to sell used to be called the brooklyn bridge, but I'm not gonna call it that ( might hamper the sale by making it appear too common ), I'll just call it the Manhattan - Brooklyn connector bridge ....yeah, that's the ticket !....can you hear the sizzle ?, can you smell the snake oil ?, are you mesmerized by all of the smoke and mirrors ?
Cha-ching !
All 29er believers, prepare to have your billfolds massaged !
While indeed they are the same diameter, I always think of 29ers as MTB paraphernalia=more rugged and heavy. While 700c's make me think of tall and slender.
