Wheel size matters

Top-selling bikes in Cortez are hardtail 29ers; in Durango, fully suspended models win out
The Breezer Repack is Lizardhead Cyclery’s second best-selling bike. It has 27.5 inch wheels, which are replacing 26-inch wheels among downhill bikers.
This Trek has suspension only on the front and 29-inch wheels. Such bikes are the best-sellers at Kokopelli Bike and Board, of Cortez.
This Salsa features 29-inch wheels and full suspension. This type of model is the No. 2 seller at Kokopelli Bike and Board.
This fat-tire bike has 26-inch wheels that are 3 inches wide. Once considered a novelty, the bikes are gaining popularity because of their ability to handle sand and snow. This is the No. 3 seller at Kokopelli Bike and Board.
Nicholas I.T. Jones, owner of Lizardhead Cyclery in Dolores, bikes across the Dolores River to demonstrate a Breezer Storm. The hardtail is the shop’s No. 3 seller.
