"Thanks' for getting back to me Malcolm. I'm pretty much sold on a 27.5. I have looked at a lot of comparisons on you tube and other web sites. Surprisingly enough a friend of mine has a 27.5, and he said I am welcome to borrow it any time.…"
"Hi Stuart, you're sort of at a mid size. Honestly, I think you could go either way. I like my 29er, but I'm taller than you. 27.5s aren't really that size, they are closer to 28. The idea for them was originally put forward by a…"
Well it seems very quiet here on the MTB forum. I just joined the other day, and did just reply to a post here dated back in April I think. So being August, he has probably already made a decision. I have been mountain biking since 2012, and at 56 almost 57, my old Merida 26" hardtail is getting a little dated. I just got back from Queenstown where I did some snowboarding, you can imagine how that went! Still nursing a bruised tailbone. What really caught my eye was the number of mountain bikes…See More
"I myself ride a 26" hardtail, but am going to upgrade to a 27.5 or 29" full suspension. Probably leaning 27.5 as I am only 5'9" myself. I ride both Daisy hill and Karawatha. Happy hunting. XC or DH, really depends on what you do…"
I own three bikes, but the one I ride at the moment is a Merida 26"hardtail. The others are a Fluid bike from Anaconda. And a Cyclops mountain bike copy from Big W.
About Me :
I have been mountain biking since 2012. After my divorce in 2010. I lived with my father for a while, and he lives a stones throw from Daisy Hill park. I saw people riding in there and wanted to do it myself. I'm not really into the wild downhill stuff, but saw your videos on you tube riding on the BVRT. I just came back from Queenstown, where I saw something similar at the southern end of lake Waikitpu. So would love to do a bit of that myself.
