Size Large in either. Steep climbs and steep singletrack down.
Anyone have a chance to ride both and compare? Is the 29er hard to manual/hop given it has 450mm chainstays? Or do they have the geo dialed to where it's poppy and fun like the Ibis Ripley? Part of me wants the 26 for the 420mm chainstays and the fun factor, but part of me wants the 29 for the burly monster abilities.
I know Specialized is moving to 650b for 2015, so pulling the trigger on the 26 knowing it will be obsolete, makes the decision even more difficult.
