    What bikes are you considering? There are more pros and cons than just suspension design nowadays.

    I am considering the Ghost lecter 7700, Santa Cruz Bronzon carbon or Pivot mach 5.7 carbon.

    the LBS guy told me the 29 inch bikes are slowly going away. The shop doesn't sell many 29 inch bikes.

    Wow, that's a nice pick. I like the 650b Bronson idea. If I'm in a similar situation I'd go with Ibis Mojo HD. Wait I was in a similar situation and that's what I got My HD is set up for both 26 and 650b. Sorry I had to introduce the extra choice. I don't know anything about Ghost to even comment.

    I am concerned about the IBIS head angle 69 degrees vs Pivot 67 degrees. The Bronson 650B is certainly heavier than Pivot mach 5.7 for sure. It weights a ton compare to the Pivot 5.7 carbon.
