Reply To: The pluses of 29er over 27.5


I have a 2017 Trek Fuel 9.8 27.5plus bike.  With 27.5 tires, you get pedal strikes galore.  With 27.5 plus its not so bad but climbing is a pain.  With 29er setup, pedal strike is no longer an issue.

I ended up with using a 2.8″ 27.5plus tire up front and 2.4″ 29er tire in the back.
