I went from a Carbine 26 to a Carbine 275 recently. I was killing it on the 26" and then bought a new Carbine with the new wheel size.

There was more notice-able difference than I thought, and as I had both sizes in the same bike back to back, I knew I was in a good position to make a comparison.

I have started to get used to the enw bike now but was wondering if anyone else on here had to make adjustments to their riding style to compensate for the larger wheel size.

I do usnderstand that some of the things I am experiencing could be down to new components as well

feeling like Im sitting on the bike rather than in
feel like the bike is less agile
tight corners are more difficult

Roll over is amazing
Better contact patch so traction is good esp climbing
holds speed well when descending
