The 29" mountain bike, aka the 29er, is the descendent of the 26" mountain bike that was started by Gary Fisher in the 1970s. The 29er is similar to the original 26" mountain bike but has a larger wheel which offers a greater ease in riding. The 29er comes in a variety of styles from single, dual or triple front chain rings to forks with or without lockout capability and hard tail or full suspension versions.
The 29" mountain bike is a perfect all around bike to be used on both aggressive and non-aggressive trails. It can be used on the bike paths or road but was primarily built for off road use. Since it has a smaller front chain ring, it was made for ease while riding on trails and to clear obstacles.
If your goal is to have the look and feel of a 29er but do not plan on on aggressive trails, you may want to consider the dual sport bike. This bike is built similar to the 29er but with a larger chain ring and thinner tires to enable to travel faster and longer distances. Check out that style of bike to compare and see what is best for you. Feel free to stop on by and we will show you and explain the differences of the bicycles.
