I accidently posted this in the General forum. Meant to post here.
First of all, can someone give me their opinion of whether or not to go to a 29" tire bike? My riding will consist of:
Trail Riding - 70%
Jumping - 10%
Road - 20%
I'm new to this so I don't know if getting a 29 is needed??
BTW, trying to stay under 1K.

They didn't have any in stock.
The same place also sells Trek but I don't know much about Trek so wasn't sure what would compare.
Anotehr store has Cannondale or Haro. I don't know much about either but the sales guy recommended Cannondale.
The F4 and the 29'er 4
Full specs on F4. $899
Full Specs on 29'er 4. $999
Neiteher were in stock in my size.
There is one other place that sells Giant but were less than helpful at that store.
I'm not necessarily stuck to these brands (Specialized, Cannondale, Trek) but that's just what is sold around here.
Any advice on what would be the best overall deal?
