If you haven’t already, be sure to check out the March issue of Mountain Bike Action. They put all three wheel sizes head to head on the trails. They rode three Jamis bikes, a 26″ Dragon Team bike, a Dragon 650b and a Dragon Race 29er. After testing all three wheel sizes, they go through and discuss the pros and cons of all three wheel sizes. We are excited by what they had to say about 650B and that they found 650B to be the most versatile wheel size.  Be sure to read it all here.
