Lately I've migrated back to 27.5s, it just feels right. I'd love to see a 27.5 HSP bike released soon. The rearward path works well with smaller wheels, offsetting the steeper angle of attack nicely. I first experienced this on my old Corsair Maelstrom 26er. Granted that was 180mm travel but the back end gobbled up bumps so well. Zero pull or hanging up of the back tire over repeated hits. Forbidden, feel free to make a 27.5, 140-160mm travel HSP frame called the Hefin. Alban Hefin is the Druid Festival of the Summer Solstice. Loose translation,  ‘The Light of the Shore’.
