Being that you are 5'6" I would probably not get a 29er. Test ride both if you can but a 29er will definitely feel bigger and with that big of wheel and that small of a frame I don't think you will like the geometry.

Agreed, but I ride all the epic single track rides in CO on the wahoo just fine. I liked my FS bikes but I don't miss it that much it just makes me take technical rocky sections a bit slower haha.

Thanks a lot for y'all's help. I want a decent bike but i don't want to be one of those people who drop 2 grand then the damn thing sits in the shed. If I really get serious ill upgrade. The trails i would use around upstate sc I think a ht would be great.

Stumpjumper 29 Comp

I have my 3 year old or so StumpJumper 29 comp and like a 10 year old Rockhopper. My two favorite mountain bikes of all time that I ride on the hills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

My next purchase needs to be a Go Pro so if or when I run into a black bear again I can get the audio of me crying like a little girl. I rode down this trail on Friday(a trail I have ridden dozens of times) and came around a nice bermed out left hand turn and all I saw was a black furry butt running away from me about 20 feet in front. I grabbed both brakes and stopped as quick as I could. After I changed my shorts I continued on. Cautiously, of course.

My friend bought a Titus Motolite frame and built it up. It is a nice bike. He has an older Motolite frame so the big drawback is the lack of clearance for a decently sized rear tire. I guess Titus had changed the design the following year to accomodate a larger rear tire.

Yeah I just switched to a 2.1 in the rear of my trek not too happy about it but at least I can use my low gear again.

Yeah I gave up on trying anything bigger than a 2.1". I have been so pleased with this bike. It's a 2007 that I bought used in 08 and Ive hammered the shit outta it and never a problem. I have it built relatively burly with crossmax SX, 145mm fork with 20mm thru axle and a dropper post and its around 28 pounds. Kinda like the Taco it's built to do it all. I've hammered Amasa Back and Porc Rim and all day Midwest singletrack epics and it seems to do well with it all. I keep lusting over all the 26 pound carbon 6" travel wonder-bikes but I'm just not sure the $6,000 price tag will gain me that much

Iím not a hardcore rider like some of you guys, but I picked up a Trek Cobia in March. Just more for recreation and getting outdoors more. Did some research before, decided on a 29er.
