I'm 6.2 - 235lbs. I ride 29er wheels and 20inch XC/HT frame (not every rider is 5.10 - 145lbs) In my opinion my 26er wheels and 22inch XC/HT frame feels like a little boys bike!

My 29er rides faster, smoother, and out climbs my 26er by about two bike lengths.

I guess opinions are like a*sholes... everyone has one. =oD

Cheers!

 My trails are mostly techy, rocky, rooty, climbs / descents, 3 to 4 foot drops, and kicker jumps sprinkled about. My wife and I are the same height at 5'10" and share a Mojo 3 and an SB4.5.... Gun to my head to pick one? Easy, take my mojo 3 and the wife because she'll be bitching about no longer having a bike.. 29ers are so much faster, climb better, roll over stuff easier and are just an all around better bike. I even jump better on the SB4.5

 Have yet to try 27.5 so 26 for me. Hated the 29ers I have tried. They were fast and ok when rolling in a straight line! Wink

 never tried any other wheel sizes for dh/am/xc and have never felt hard done by with the 26" wheel sets i have on each bike

 29 for underskilled riders and Strava goons. 27.5 for shredders, jumpers, and mind-blowing fun. 26 on a budget and still want to have fun.

 If you said anything other than 26" you should probably go outside and just buy a road bike and f*ck off.
