Fat Bob on MTBR says

"Or it could be that 700c rolls great over things, but is slower and less flickable than a 26". 26" is quick & nimble, but has a tougher time getting over stuff, so split the difference and have a wheel size big enogh to roll over things with ease, but light and fast enough to flick and transition quickly."

Fat Bob gets a gold star.

Whoa! I'm being quoted, next time I'll check my spelling ;o)

Can't wait to hook up with a 650b wheel & tire, the 96 thing is proving to be a little too "clutsy" for me
