I have a Diamondback Bicycle 2016 Recoil Full Suspension Complete Mountain Bike. Was wondering if I can change it from 27.5 (2.2) to 29? Do I need to get new disc brakes or just a wheel and tires will do?

It seems unlikely to me that you could put a 29 on the back of that bike. What tire do you currently run on it, and how much height is available? Same with fork.

It won't work. Even if the rear tire would fit (it probably won't), you'd need a new fork and even then the tire may rub on the frame and would almost certainly ride all wonky. What's the reason for wanting to switch? That's an entry level bike. Ride it.
