Of the podium finishers in the men's and women's mountain bike race in Rio, what bike brand & models did they use? Which rims?
There has been a big debate over 26, 650B and 29er inch rims. 4 years ago, during the men's race remember seeing different Rim sizes. However during this race they seem to be the same size. Does anybody know what size won out in the rim wars? I also noticed that if my memory serves me correctly for the top women finishers they had hard tails. But for the men's the top finishers used full suspension bikes.
From four years ago London, the racers indeed did use different rim sizes. So how about Rio?
