Are you asking about the Framed Twenty9er or 29" cruisers in general?

Pretty much ya. Just wondering how the feel of a bigger wheel is.

DEAD with no feedback from the riding surface.  I know you’re a big dude, but if you wanna have fun and have a feel for the terrain, I wouldn’t go any bigger than a 26”.

Great insight P. I’m on a waiting list for a Redline 26 and I probably won’t go any bigger than that.

I have two 29" bikes that I rarely ride, one fat tire 26" (that is basically a 29" diameter) which is fun in an odd way, but my three 26" bikes are my go to all around fun bikes.  I had two more 26" bikes, but sold them as I was running out of space.  I will add that I here a lot of good things about the 27.5 bikes, but I only have my State Bicycle Co. Grateful Dead Klunkers in that size, so I can't comment as to how a BMX in that size would feel.  I mean, 29s are easy rolling bikes, but not as easy to throw around if you want to ride it like a BMX, and takes more time to adjust to the length for a simple hop onto a curb.  26 just doesn't seem to take as long to adapt to riding if coming from a 20"


I keep buying and selling, so I guess I wasn't happy with the four I had left.

Re: LET'S SEE YOUR CRUISERS.

Recently freshened up my 06 General Lee 24. I bought it new but it has been with a friend for about ten years. When I got it back I switched out the pedals, chain, and grips. Took off the Race Inc decals that I had stuck on all those years ago (see "my bikes"), cleaned and waxed it up, and greased everything. Looks and rides like new. Loving this thing all over again. https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/858/20210728_23181961022db044.jpg

They are stored away. I just wanted to get something new to ride on. The Maximizers are okay to ride on but was looking for something that holds a higher psi rating. There's more choices for all black tires than gum/tan walls
