I think it was based on the lives of dminor and ed, maybe some Zeph and Danni tossed in.

I'm 6' 3" and am committed to my 26er. Just what I'm used to, I would pick up a Tallboy if someone dropped $4K my way!

Is this your version of "Now choose your favorite size and be a dick about it"? Ha, just messin' around.

I'm 6'2" and right there with you on the 26, but I've also only ever owned 26. "29 Essentials..." just seemed a bit convenient.

I've probably watched a half-dozen mountain biking videos on YouTube, visited a half-dozen bike shops and looked at a lot of bike photos online and it's scary how much of that video I got and could relate to!

Very Funny!
My wife would agree with the segment about moving out of the bedroom. While not quite that bad, we're building a new house that has a two car garage for cars and a third, attached garage dedicated to BIKES! Gotta get your priorities in order.
