    I was hopeing to find which bikes proform best in the mud, if you get off the tar here you are in the swamp. I might be looking for a mudder for my stable, you know right tool for the job.

    29er, hands down, more tread = more grip :: longer wheelbase = more stable. also mud specific tires, no bike brand or model is better than another for mud, i prefer a hard tail for more direct power transfer to my wheels.

    Usually on mud oriented trips my camera doesn't like to come along. Cool pictures though. You prefer a single speed MTB over multi geared?
