Getting back into mountain biking after a decade+. Lots has changed since then! Looking for a bike that going to be smooth on the body, won't be doing big air or super crazy stuff. I know you can bike with a hardtail, but what the minimal amount of suspension for the Shore, that will prevent jarring the joints? I'm 6' tall, and I like how the 29" wheels roll over things. I was in one bike shop and he wouldn't recommend any 29er's, he said 27.5 is the best wheel size for the Shore, but they were less than 6' tall. So, for you bikers that are 6' or taller, what are your thoughts on the 29er? What bikes are you riding?
Thanks for helping with the confusion of getting back into the sport!
