Hello boys and girls

    just like the old big hits had 26" front wheels and 24" rear.

    I think this topic has been discussed before

    and the 69ers been around for years.

  • I know this concept is not new, but it’s the first time I see it applied in an aggressive hardtail trail bike.
    It really seems a good idea for trail riding and maybe with that 27,5” rear wheel it feels more balanced than a 69er…
    This is something I would mind to try, and this is coming from someone who doesn’t like 29ers.
    I wonder how a 27,5” front and 26” rear wheel, steel framed, aggro hardtail would be like?

    Compared to a 26"? almost negligible I bet
