26 vs 29
Here's my problem. I have started racing and will probably be needing to get a new bike next year or the year after. Marin( I love their bikes) is putting out a fully geared 29er and I don't know if I should look at 29ers or a standard 26" tired bike. I have heard that 29ers are faster but don't turn as well. I have had problems in races with beating everbody on the climbs just to have them pass me on the winding downhills so not turning as well is a big concern. If anyone that reads this(if anybody does) has opinions or advice on the subject let me know.
