I got a mid travel 29er this year. Wasn't sure if I'd like the "new geo." I get along with it OK. It's really fast and on flow stuff is a blast. Problem is I dont really prefer flow. It is what I do on the way to tech/gnar. I find the bike a bit flexy and on the steep stuff, doesn't inspire confidence. i can get down stuff but just feel nervous pushing things on the bike. At the end of the day, I'd rather ride my 150 travel 27.5 than the short travel 29er. There are some rides I like the 29er but when things get messy I'd rather have something more confidence inspiring. So now I'm thinking about ditching this frame and swapping the parts onto a rootdown. I don't really want another wagon wheeler. The short stays on the rootdown would make the 29 wheels a lot more fun and I suspect the chromag would probably be confidence inspiring compared to my full flex wagon wheeler.
So am I crazy to ditch a carbon modern geo wonderbike because it's not awesome on the gnarliest trails? Should I just stick with it a while longer?
