Is The Mountain Bike Industry Trying To Cancel 27.5"? | GMBN Tech Show Ep. 170

Published on April 7th 2021


On the GMBN Tech Show this week, Rich and Doddy are asking the question, is the mountain bike industry trying to get rid of 27.5" (650b) wheels? Is the future 29er only? - It seems a lot of brands are making more 29 inch bikes now and although this may suit some riders, is it better for everyone? - Do you miss 26"? What do you love or hate about 27.5 or 29ers? Do you prefer having the choice in the matter? 🤔 Let us know your thoughts below!
