|B+ wheels on the OS Blackbuck|
Look, if you don't like any of these wheel sizes, or want to bitch about any of them just for being, then you don't like bicycles or off road riding. I mean- think about this- There are more ways to satisfy the itch now and probably more than there ever has been in the history of cycling. Now is the "golden age". Don't miss it because you want to argue about a stupid wheel size. Just pick one and ride it already! Again: Bike nerds rejoice!

So, I wince, and chuckle, and smile wryly when I see all this wheel size posturing and arguments going on in forums or in the bike shops. We have it good now- real good, but it seems no one is getting that. "Choices are good", they say. Good for causing negativity, it would seem. Too bad. Some even seem to want to return to that simplicity and lack of choices. Really?
Pfft! I say it's all good. More choices to meet more specific needs and more ways to enjoy the fun of riding a bicycle. Could we have gotten along without it all? Sure we could. We could all "Tom Ritchey Up" and just use a road bike for everything, but isn't it more fun the way it is now?
I'd like to think so.
