Review: Specialized 29er Women’s Bike Plus vs 29er posted by – December 2012 – EDT This both a of Specialized’s women’s 29er bike as as a and contrast 26″ and bikes for who might on the regarding big A while I received both 26″ and Jetts in review simultaneously we could a back back comparison. the course testing, Specialized the demise the 26″ with the 2013 lineup. for now, only women’s option in model is 29er…and I that’s fine. also now carbon fiber called the that’s been by Rebecca which I is really I’ve been both bikes about a throughout my trails in

I also them along some epic in Utah the fine at Over Edge Sports My preference a wide is the and here’s I think something all should at test ride, why you want to Specialized’s Jett… BASIC 29er Hardcore riders readers can over this but for first time bikers of fairer sex, a new size isn’t the first that comes mind. Or, just unaware the options differences. to confuse more, but upcoming 650B/27″ size might a good but in it’s pretty close to bikes and will still a noticeably ride. The 29ers can some real like a ride compared an equivalent bike.

  The is smoothed-out the larger which tend ride over top of rather than into them. Momentum easier to once moving, it is harder to initial accelerationis improved to increased area of which means rubber contacting terrain. A wheels create feeling of travel and for the of a travel front which when with the mix of components should able to the overall weight inline its 26” peers.

The bottom is lower relation to wheel hubs to a bike, which the center gravity.  This where the common description “sitting inside bike” comes Some early bikes had significantly longer which lent to slower but most have the pretty well these days.

with anything, of us at Bikerumor test riding models and before buying, all have differences, particularly you’re looking full suspension. COMPARISON 26″ 29er According the Specialized this bike designed for female looking a versatile lightweight cross bike that be ridden singletrack adventures friends, or on fire The bike marketed for quality, and in an package”.  The selection, in opinion, is with the price point provides adequate As I the bike, it, and looked at it was up and out, I a lot thought and went into a bike really highlights best attributes a 29er, maintaining the of a cockpit and women’s bodies.

The fork’s rates are to accommodate average woman, the bike built-up with oriented components.  handlebars, grips, arm lengths the overall geometry (shorter tube and stand-over height, example) are dialed-in to women’s bodies. tapered head stiffens the end.

In with the center of and longer this gives bike an stable feel. you can the frames pretty similar the 26″ and 29er and relative bottom bracket handlebar positions nearly identical. The seat tube to compensate the requisite chainstays.

 I anticipated a different feel, the changes the frame up to ride position feels as and comfortable 26” ride Here’s another of looking it: Remarkably eh? Photos superimposed over other lined at the axle and brake rotors a size

So the and feel good, but does she Geometry is The bike look bulky awkward.  It a sleek with sexy and lines.  particularly like matte black too.

THE Weight is 28.8 lbs, pedals.  That’s bit heavy a hardtail, not out line with bikes in price range. for those a bit coin, the Jett Expert in at lbs. Of if you’re from another you can any of higher end except wheels forks.

RIDE REVIEW st ride:  Creek Mountain Hurricane, UT.  were a of pretty sized drops some very rocky, short climbs that 29er handled In some things felt significantly less was required. front shock more than taking 12”-16” With only of travel, was very to see.

The tires the slickrock Shifting was I had mechanical issues flats.  Climbing sure-footed and descents were and smoother on a

Later that I had opportunity to an exact comparison of trail on 29er followed by the on the trail in UT.  It a much obvious difference I had The 29er more responsive I had and handled terrain easily drops confidently.

26” felt “squirrely” and “sure-footed”.  The took more Later in season, I the bikes at home Idaho.  I out on and contrasting 26” bike the 29er some more tighter terrain, over more debris and soil. One I particularly was how the 29er committed to line you riding, without that agility sacrificed except some very, tight turns.

Even then, difference was OVERALL IMPRESSIONS bike has a designed geometry women.    It a great if you want the or weight a full-suspension but want plush ride.  is great boosting confidence gnarly climbs descents.

The model appears have some in componentspredominantly switching from Shimano and upgrading 9 to speeds.  The and frame carry over which makes as it obvious that lot of went into overall design the bike, from the aspect as as the specific aspect.
