    Moving 26 SS to 29 SS Rigid

    Current SS is an El Toro, it's been a great bike for the past nearly 4 years. Lately I've been considering the move to a 29er and the natural choice is an El Commandante. Has anyone made the same move? If so, I'd like to hear your thoughts.

    I made the switch from a Merlin HT 26er to a Ventana El Padrino in 2006. The short of it is 29ers were not for me. I ended up having Sherwood build me a 650B HT.......best hard tail I have ever owned. I'm running a 2008 Fox Float set at 120mm. The bike is just plain fun. I would try to demo a 29er before jumping in blind like I did.....just saying.
