    Jamis Sixfiftey vs other 29er/26er

    Hey, Im looking to get into a 29er from a 26er for xc/single track riding. Was wondering how the sixfiftey compared to a 29er in feel as well as a 26er. Better, worse? is it worth it? the others that I am looking at are rumblefish, niner mcr, yeti big top, maybe a sc tall boy for 29ers and mostly just the asr 5 for 26ers.

    You should check out the 650b forum. Lots of great information there. There is no better or worse when is comes to sizes but each has their own characteristics. What I will tell you is that no other major manufacturer has more 650b models. The 2012 Jamis line looks especially strong. When it comes to 650b Jamis is the world leader.
    He who dares....wins!
