    Manitou seems to be selling a shitload of OEM-spec'ed JUNIT forks.

    Other trends to take note - kid IS wearing gloves and NOT wearing goggles with his half lid. And with 26ers coming back, perhaps humanity is saved?

    One of the hardest things about going back and forth with wheel sizes is forgetting you can't roll over stuff the same way. Whoops!

    I'd wager that's a British kid. Can't really tell because his mouth is closed - if we could see his grill we'd be able to tell for sure.

    I always thought it was stupid when my Euro friends did it and said it was "moto".
    Me: "Is your rear brake lever down by the right pedal then? Do you shift with your left foot?"

    Harry Schofield. He is a British kid and I assure you, Stuck, he will make you feel inadequate if you put him up on a penny farthing. Incredible ripper on a bike and moto. So good that it makes me worry for him at times given that he's 10.

    Serious question - why would anyone buy a 26" bike over a 29" (downhill bikes excluded)?

    Did you read this thread at all? These are kids bikes. The 26er in question is recommended for people 4'8" to 5'2.

    Ok, sorry, misinterpretation. Guess I was busy looking at the photo of the little shredder killing it.

    That's what I keep telling everyone!!

    EVERYONE of EVERY height needs to be buying 29ers because that's just what's going on these days.

    And then give me all their 26" tires they aren't using......things are useless. I mean who would even......psshhhh

    Lol. I have a pile of 26 tires, some used but still a bunch new going back to the 90's. No you can't have them. I still have a nice selection of 26ers.

    Cyclocross racers have been doing it for ever. I never did it on my cross bikes but had a friend that reversed all their brakes on all bikes. Yes I borrowed a bike once and immediately endo’d since I didn’t know they had done it. Everyone laughed.

    Most of my moto friends do not reverse their bike brakes. Different machine so your brain keeps it separate.
