I think more choice is always better, i have two 29ers and from the moment i first sat on one i felt at home and as though i had been at a disadvantage upto that point, but i am 6'3". 29 inch wheels suit my size, 26 inch wheels suit small to medium frames and i think medium to large riders should go ahead and try 27.5 inch wheels. Maybe they'll like them. To me it really is that simple.
Be careful out there, they're trying to kill you.
