26” hardtail mountain bikes
The current range of hardtail mountain bikes with 26-inch wheels can be roughly divided into three different types. The first type are the attractive beginners mountain bikes which continue to pair the classic dimension with smaller frames. The second, and perhaps the most important, are the dirtjump hardtails which use their compact 26 inch wheels for air and ground tricks and offer lighter play and superior durability. Finally, you have the fat bikes with their powerful tyre format – for an overall wheel that actually ends up much closer to the larger 29er.
