me; 5'10"
285lbs
50 years old but act like 16.
short legs
after exhaustive research I settled on an se stout, size 17.5.
I gave it to my 15 year old thinking it would be a cinch finding another bike. bikesdirect has plenty of 29er SS but i'm a bit too heavy for an aluminum bike. I just stumbled upon the nashbar bee's knees. I love a steel bike and this is one pretty little bike.
is 27.5 the wave of the future? I don see a lot of tire choices in this size. is it a passing fancy? anybody here ride 27.5? anybody here ride this bike?
this bike will see about 50% around town fitness. 20% easy trail riding. 20% local errands and such. 10% spur of the moment dirt and grass and gravel roads.
any and all comments and suggestions welcome.

Almost all bike manufacturers are already moving to either producing 29 or 27.5 inch bikes. While my 26er works great and I love it, if I were to buy a new buy I would buy either one of those.
