    From 27.5 Blur XCc conversion back to 29er?

    Just curious who may have tried 27.5 and actually prefer 29er. I converted the bike below and really like how it turned out, but just keep finding myself back on the 29er when it comes time to ride/race. I am actually to the point where I may even try to find someone with a comparably equipped 29er to trade with. This may be the wrong forum for this question...

    A converted 26" bike is a lot different then a dedicated 650b bike. Ride what you wanna.....

    There are plenty of these threads............use the forum search function. That's the beauty of having three wheel sizes and very wide range frame types......everybody will find what works for them.

    Thanks, I will. This was a dumb post, and not really sure why I created. Unfortunately, unable to figure out how to delete...

    I'm on the same conversion as you, and won't go back after 5 previous years on a 29er. I race my XC Carbon and love it.

    On a related note, if you want to unload those wheels... let me know...

    Ride what makes you happy; ignore all other concerns.

    The Enve wheels replaced a set of Stans 650b Medalist which are sitting in the corner feeling inferior. They are lighter than the Enve, but collecting dust for now...
