    Bike models available in 29" and 27.5"

    Hi all, what bikes are currently available with both 29" and 27.5" (non-plus) wheels? I'd like to demo two bikes that are as alike as possible minus the wheels (so I can pick a wheel size and be a dick about it, ha).

    Aside from bikes that are set up for 29" and 27.5+ (like the Switchblade and Hightower), the ones I'm aware of are the Django and Jeffsy (although the Jeffsy has minor geo differences that are not directly related to the different wheel sizes).

    I assume some mfrs offer two models with different names that are essentially the same bike except for the wheel size? I'm most interested in full-suss bikes with at least 120mm of squish.

    Thanks!

    The new Kona Process 153 - both wheel sizes have same amount of travel. Geo is basically the same on both.

    I tested both and ended up with 29 version.

    I think Norco whole lineup has that option. Fluid, Optic, Sight and Range.

    I'd say most.....it's the current trend.
    I resolve to constantly assert my honest opinion on anything and everything - whether it is requested or not.

    Stumpjumper, Enduro, Camber...if specialized is your thing. All are great bikes, but most everyone I know chooses the 29 flavor.
