  • I'm 178 cm and it's a medium. Having tried it, I actually believe getting a 120mm fork is not a problem for someone of my height.

  • Beside Chi Ma Wan, how about the Tai Lam Reservoir loop, or even Dragon's Back 29" wheeler report?

    There have been some postings about 29er in local mountain bike forum but the majority are still on 26".

  • Both Chi Ma Wan and Tai Lam are very nice in my opinion. Chi Ma Wan is definitely tougher and more technical. I haven't done Dragon's Back yet, too many hikers I reckon.

  • Do you run regular inner tube or go tubeless? I guess there are few choices of tyres and rims for 29er given they're just starting to show up in HK bike shops.
