    Genius 700 or 900?

    I just sold My spark 900, as im looking for more travel to beter suit my local terrain. I have ridden 29er for some time now, so im used to the wheelsize. Any of you made the change fr.o.m. 29 to 27,5?
    Im deciding between Genius 900, and 700.
    Pros and cons?
    Im also looking at Genius 700 tuned as an alternative.

    I got a genius 650B 2013 before that I had a giant xtc 29er 2012 and basically come down to what I wanted to ride.

    I just got bored of the 29er HT never road a 29er full suspension (for XC it was great on flat terrain it fly) I just wanted more travel 650B wheels 150mm to ride all mountain or enduro...and man I do have fun with my bike for MTB I dont care about the weight it climbs good but on the downhill i dont care I go for the jump drops etc.

    I also have a DH bike but sometime I like to pedal and earn the Descents so basically for me a went for the 650B because it climb ok and I have fun on the Descents

    Thanks for your input Mike.
    I think i Will go for Genius 700 tuned. 27,5 wheelsize and 150 mm travel. Boost valve on the rear shock and super light weight.

    That bike will rock I have the 740 2013 with a DTM3 (im trying to swap to a fox ctd) that is ok but has handle 4-5 feet drop and some gaps so the 700 tuned with the fox rear shock is going to rock.

    Yeah, my 720 has been a stud for this whole season. Might change up the shock, but not unless it fails, and the DT has been just fine for me so far. Definitely a fun ride.

    I just bought the Genius 730 and love it. Definitely a do-it-all bike. I've also ridden the Genius 940 and liked it, but it just felt more like a 29er xc rig...totally different feel in my opinion. The 730 feels much more aggressive soaking up drops but still pedalling like a xc bike on the flats.
