      Out in the peaks on Saturday and was amazed at the sheer amount of 29ers knocking about. 650b does seem to favour the best in the three wheel roundups I read though.
      try having a straight headtube....tyres are easy lol. i honestly think the 456 will end up burly as hell and i'll get a more trail/xc full suss. 29er possibly, they do appeal to me, 650b would only happen because it's the default now. still haven't tried either though so may be wrong

      • So, I'm some preliminary research, I have read a few articles around FS frames (generally) being on the smaller side compared to their HT cousins

        For those of you riding FS what size frame do you have and how tall are you ?

        Cheers

        • 6' 2" XL, although the Heckler was L.

          SCs have a short top tube so the XL for me is slightly better.

          • I'm 6' 1' and my voodoo is a large (19) which with the saddle up a fair bit works for me

            As coiler said though fs ers have a lot more variety in geometry so it depends what brand/model you look at

              • Thanks guys - that's helpful and would obviously need to go and try a few out before splashing anything like that kind of cash

                My HT is a 19" Large and i'm 6 foot 1 and it seemed huge when I first got it but don't know if that's it being a 29er

                Its going to feel even bigger with my 800 bars on

                I actually fee like going a bit smaller and just need to look at a plan to covert the Bronson
