    New Bike Questions

    Hey Guys-
    I am looking for a new bike, but am having a hard time deciding. I really like 29ers, but the 27.5 size intrigues me from the standpoint of playing around on the bike and more flickability.

    I have test ridden the Tallboy C and really liked it, super fast. At least for me.

    I have a Bronson C at home at the moment to ride tomorrow. I think that's going to be WAY too much bike, but it was the only 275 the shop had at the moment in my size.

    The SC Solo and Yeti SB95C/75 appeal as well, but to the best of my knowledge I can't get a test ride on one of those in MN.

    How would you guys make your decision and is there anything else you would recommend me try before I drop the coin?

    Thanks!!

    29er I like the Ibis Ripley, and for 26/650b I like the Ibis HD. I had it set up for both 26 and 650b and in both travel. Very happy!!

    From your list there's nothing wrong with any of the models you mentioned.

    Are you going to keep the Titus or are you selling it? If I had that bike I might lean towards a 29r for more of a gap between my bikes. If you will only have the new bike, try and demo a few more 650 and 29r before plunking down the money.
