Trailgrams: Shootouts Rule


The shootout you did in the January issue was interesting. I was really curious how the mixed wheel-sized bike would perform, and it came as a bit of surprise that the wrecking crew didn’t favor that bike, considering the platform has done well for racers. Maybe we shouldn’t believe the hype of what racers are doing. Regardless, I really thought the article was cool and was happy the 29er came out on top since I just bought a new Santa Cruz Hightower. Twenty-Niners rule.
