I'm a Computer (Web) Programmer/Analyst based in Anchorage, AK and Minneapolis, MN. I use (among other things) ASP.NET, C# and SQL Server.

I build things. Bicycles, computers, websites, guitars, cars, motorcycles, sound sytems... lots of things.

comment What is the frame called that fits 700c wheels?
While the "29er" uses the same diameter wheels as 700c, doesn't the c refer to the width? I thought "29er" rims were wider and accepted much wider tires.

comment What is the frame called that fits 700c wheels?
Agreed, but if the size is omitted, or not specified otherwise, it's likely 26". I rarely see the 26 spelled out explicitly, or included in the name.

comment What are the consequences of riding a bicycle tire backwards?
That's true too, not to mention the 'non-directional' tires. The ones that are designed like that usually have arrows going both ways ('Front'/'Rear' perhaps) or no arrow at all, so I assumed we were talking about the single direction arrow only.

comment Why have 29-ers arisen only recently?
Indeed, though no downvote from me. They're different tools for different situations; Mountain Bikes are more durable (read: can take a pothole or 6 foot drops) and can go places that would make road bikes cry, but clearly can't keep up with their additional rolling resistance, weight, and aerodynamic drag.

Would platform pedals qualify as well, since they are 'clipless' too?
