'+' wheel Sizes
#1
Hi does anyone use 27.5+ or 29+? I'm very tempted by a Stumpjumper fsr 27.5+. Anyone have any thoughts on these new wheel sizes? Will they last? Will I be able to get a new rim in two years time?

I considered building a set of 650B+ for my Turner Sultan, I would have had to use one of the narrower options as I did not have huge clearance. With the wheels & tyres I planned to use the moment of inertia would have been higher than the 29er wheels & tyres and that would not change the riding characteristic in the way I wanted.
