    just found a really good deal on this bike,but im not too familiar with 26inch wheels

    Anyone know if a 27.5 will fit?

    It has the stock fox shocks in the front ant rear.

    Also if not what are your thoughts on riding 26ers, i mostly ride single track,and xc

    26″ bikes ride just fine, but hopefully you’ll be paying next to nothing for it as you a. cannot find any new bikes outside of kids bikes with 26″ wheels, b. the geometry will be out of date as changes to bike geometry have been immense in the seven years since that bike came out, and c. the components including the suspension are likely toast and even if it’s been sitting storage will at least need basic service. Finally, it isn’t likely that 27.5 wheels will fit and even if they do it will take the geometry of that bike and make it even worse. There are some older 26″ bikes that are worth riding today eg. a steel hard tail, but I would not mess that one unless you get it for free.
