Advantages of 29”:
  1. Easier to get over rocks logs. If your weakness is tough terrain even if you are short and or light then this might be the best choice. If your scared of tough terrain best choice! Great for beginner riders scared of tough terrain. 
  2. More surface area so better climbing on slick rock. 
  3. Lower rolling resistance so faster on roads and straight aways which is important if you have a long road ride before the trails. 
  4. Less chance of flats due to larger point of contact. 
  5. Quickest acceleration between trees and tight turns. 
  6. Really good for heavy and tall riders.
  7. The wheel has lots of momentum so once you get it going fast you just need to keep it up to speed. 
  8. Because the bottom bracket is below the axles the bicycle is much more stable. 
  9. Great for fast downhill riding – lots of stability.
