The new “29ers” might be the fat skis of the mountain-bike world.

Remember the fat-ski revolution? It might be time to say hello to the mountain-bike revolution. The hot new design in mountain bikes is 29-inch wheels. Bike geeks call them “29ers,” to differentiate them from the standard 26-inch-wheels on traditional mountain bikes.

A new system of downhill mountain bike trails would provide year-round recreation. But what are the environmental impacts?

Timberline Lodge and Ski Area has proposed a plan to construct 15 miles of lift-serviced mountain biking trails and an acre-sized skills park. Until now, bikers eager for some downhill action have been creating their own trails. These illegally constructed routes are said to be damaging Oregon’s public lands. The new network of trails will be designed to meet the growing demand for year round recreation on the hill. Although nearby Portland has more people with bikes per capita than any other state, there are few lift-accessed mountain biking areas.
