Every once in a while an invention comes around that revolutionizes our sport. Disc brakes, suspension and of course the 29er. These technologies inject much innovation, revenue and passion into mountain biking. They are rare like Haley’s Comet or like a leap day like February 29. So on this February 29, Mtbr would like to celebrate 29er bike day.
We would like you to share with us your experiences about 29ers. We’ll convert our site into a 29er for a day! Tell us when you’ve tried the 29er bike and what it means to you.
Go out there and ride your bike and share with us stories and photos and videos. Carpe Diem 29er or Seize the 29er Day!
If you don’t have one, why not go out and win one! Go to the Mtbr home page as we are giving away a Specialized Camber 29 worth $2200. All you have to do is Like Us on Facebook or Tweet our home page (www.mtbr.com) or sign up for our newsletter and you are automatically entered. We will pick the winner on March 1. This is the shortest wait time for a contest this big so get in there!
We would like to express our gratitude to every inventor, designer, manufacturer, evangelist, user, and buyer who has fought for the 29er revolution. It has been a long journey and the top of the mountain is in sight.
Today on February 29, 2012, 29ers are no longer a niche. 29ers are just bikes. Tell us how you rode your bike today.
