to throw another monkey wrench into the plans.... forget 26 and 27.5 and go straight to a 29er. After years of running a 29" XC bike, 26" on my 150mm AM/MiniDH rig and 26" on my 200mm dual crown DH rig i've replaced all of those bikes with a 150mm 29er.

With the new geometry on these things, it just does everything better. I've hit up all of the local trails, spent a week in Sedona, will have it out to Moab in a couple of weeks, plan to rack up 30+ days at winter park and keystone and make another trip to the PacNW for Whistler, Squamish and Pemby.

they still got these on great clearance pricing:

It also probably depends on your frame size. 27.5 is a good wheel size for smaller frames where there is t much space for a 29" wheel
