Dreamride White Rim 29 inch wheeled Mountain Bikes - Dreamride: "1) Momentum is the key to understanding advantages of the larger wheels. Whatever dissipates momentum is the enemy of the 29 inch wheel (especially with fat tires). Whatever creates momentum is friend to 29ers. A 29er will eat up a 26 inch wheel bike on smooth, rolling terrain and especially on the flats. On a long steady or slow technical climb, the 26 inch wheel has the advantage, but this advantage can be overcome by a 29er pilot on a very light rigid 9er with a relentless clock-steady cadence."
