Twenty-Nine inch wheel mountain bikes are now free to compete in any UCI sanctioned race around the world.
“We’d been talking for almost a year about this thing. They are reasonable people at the UCI and they realize that the Two-Niner is a legitimate bike,” said Fisher.
“I’m just psyched; I’ve been around long enough to help make so many great changes in the bike industry.”
The Two-Niner has been experiencing success this season. Subaru-Gary Fisher rider Nat Ross won the recent Saab-Salomen Mountain Mayhem 24-hour event, and placed second in the US 24-Hour Solo National Championships on his Sugar 292.
