I have been riding a 27.5 plus bike for the last few months and have enjoyed the ride, but after riding a Kona Honzo at a demo day then buying one, I have sold my plus bike and full suspension to get back to a one bike does it all and simplify the family garage. I started on a Scott Scale 29 hardtail and then Specialized Camber 29 and then Fuse and Mason. The 29 wheel with 2.4 up front and 2.25 in rear is by far faster, has better roll over and just plain feels more sensitive to input and control. The Honzos geometry and build make it an all around, ass kicking trailbike.
