Reply To: The pluses of 29er over 27.5


To echo what other people have said, trying it out should help you a lot. I had the opposite scenario: I had a 29er and chose to downsize to a 27.5. I did this because I am small (5’2″) and sometimes felt like I didn’t have control on the big bike, and had a really hard time getting the wheels off the ground (even with a good preload). If weight and frame-to-wheel size are not an issue for you, then you’ll likely enjoy the larger wheels.
