I've fallen off the DSLR wagon again but hope to fix that soonish. Meanwhile a GoPro selfie from today.

Cool, thanks. VPP bike?

I'm in the market for a new bike, trying to decide on 27.7" or 29" wheels.

Not VPP, it's close to DW.
If you're not into riding very technical trails just go with 29" wheels. I would, and probably will on a next bike.
I think you're a TREK guy? They have plenty of good options and excellent support.

Yeah Trek has been so freaking good to me with warranty support, I'm definitely going to try to stick with them. Plus my LBS is a Trek shop, and the owner is a fantastic guy.

I'm split between a Superfly FS 29 and a Fuel EX 27.5. I've read a few things that claim the tweener wheel size has most of the benefits of a 29 with fewer of the negatives. Of course this may be from companies pushing the tweener size because they sell it.

Most of the people on the MORE forum (our local chapter of IMBA) who ride the trails I ride are trying to steer me toward the 27.5. I want to demo both, because I'm very much a put the hammer down and fly kind of guy than I am a jumping, dropping kind of guy. I think only a demo of both will iron things out.

Basically 650B will be more playful while 29" will be more stable and efficient; it rolls over stuff better. Bikes are designed around the wheels so it's more than just the wheel size, it's the whole package. A different part spec might even influence your feeling on one or the other bike.

Trek just revamped their line. I'm looking at the new Top Fuel. It's a 29er, but the review say it has shorter chainstays and much more lively handling. Plus you can alter the geometry by playing with the rocker pivot. It seems like the best bet. They aren't even offering my size in a 27.5 anymore, at least not unless you do a DH bike.
