People can start on a 29er just fine, they are a practical, comfortable alternative to a 26er and are completely acceptable (you can even get tyres for them these days!). The two default choices in the reasonable/factory end of the market are the gary fisher bikes (now sold through the trek network) like the paragon, and the giant xtc 29er. The fisher is a bit more playful/stylish, but the giant is specced better.

29ers are great for just regular XC trails and races like that...not so good for downhill, freeride and slope style.
My next XC/trail bike could very well indeed be a 29er.

The worst possible thing to do when starting out is to get a 29er. You can get one once you are able to smash everyone else on the 24 hour on a normal bike, then they can ridicule you all they like, you'll still beat them anyway!

I am in the market for a good mtb, and need some advice. I am a big guy 6'4" and around 290. I am thinking a 29er is a good bet, but don't really have much experience in picking out a bike. I want at least a working understanding before going into a bike shop, to make sure I am not getting taken.

I'm waiting for it to cool down again, we had a 2-day break in the heat, but it's back. Good thing my new Camelbak came in the mail today.

Went out to Sycamore Canyon/Pt. Mugu in sunny SoCal yesterday with a few brothers and a few friends and had a great long ride. We got a bit lost, but still had a great time.

Good thing I jumped on the bike when I did to get materials back to the library, started to rain just as I rolled up to the house. Not that I was going to melt, but my Camelback is not water-proof and had my stuff from the library in it.

Last week my 12 yr old daughter had a dentist appointment here in Holt, the weather was outstanding and what a great reason to break out the bikes and ride to it. Ride often, ride hard, ride free.

Today is going to be sunny and 62 degrees, I may forgo some much needed sleep (I work 3 - 13hr shifts 7pm to 8am) to get some tire time in before work tonight.
