29ers still great for large riders, Slick rock, City riding.
http://www.rbinc-sports.com Jamis 2015 Durango 29er Race Mountain Bicycle.
The Dakota D29 series is the hardtail standard for high-speed racing or long, epic days on the trail. For the Team and Pro, we’ve taken our years of experience manufacturing carbon fiber Dakar XCR dual suspension frames and Xenith road racing frames and applied it to the big-wheeled world of 29’ers. For the Race and Comp, it’s the same race-inspired geo welded up from triple-butted 6061.
The Durango may be the most affordable 29’er in our stable, but there’s nothing entry-level about the performance of these bikes. Best-in-Class performance and Big Hoops doesn’t have to mean Big Bucks and the Durango 29 Comp and Sport prove it.
