Hi! i want to buy a yt jeffsy comp 29. i have 173 cm.
I'm in doubt between buying 29 and 27.5, but I'm more inclined to buy 29 and then put 27.5 behind. it's possible? has anyone done this?

Geometry-wise, it should work just fine - if you run it in the High position, it'll make the bike just slightly lower and slacker than the factory Low position.

I would be cautious about tire size. I don't have a carbon rear triangle to test, but sometimes the chainstays get a little closer together just behind the rear tire, to maximize chainring clearance. My aluminum Jeffsy does this. A 27.5" wheel might actually rub where a 29" has clearance. This is especially a concern if you were hoping to run a 2.6" tire.
