    Does anyone run a 27.5 x 3.0 front and a 29 x 2.4/2.6 on the rear?

    I have an swork stumpjumper 6fattie than I've run both 27.5+ or 29 on because I needed a new tire on the rear that is taking time to ship I'm running my 29 x 2.6 on the rear. The total diameter of that rear wheel is slightly bigger than the front. I do find the bike rides ok and it's been pretty decent and I might just keep it like this even when my new rear tire comes.

    Just wondering if I should go to 29 x 2.4 to make them more similar in total diameter and if there are any adverse qualities to having a slightly bigger diameter wheel in the back.

    I have done the reverse mullet on my Fuse. 27.5 x 3.0 on front and 29 x 2.3 rear. No problems at all. Fun to experiment if you have the equipment to do so.
