Hey Guys, I've been riding my 2008 Ex9 for about 5 years, pretty much stock except for tubeless and the saddle. The past year has seen some slippage in the components as they age and all I seem to see out on the trails in my area are 29ers... It's about time to start replacing components or get a new bike.....I love my Ex9, but would a 29er Ex8 or 9 be better?

I do a lot of intermediate level trail riding, not many jumps, but I like to go fast and be comfortable etc.... I'd like to hear from other Fuel riders who have moved from 26 to 29 to see how you have made the transition...

I currently ride a Large frame, I am 5'10" and 205lbs

Thanks for your opinions!
