Swop 27.5 wheelset for29ers?


Recommended Posts


Hi I have Merida Team 96 27.5 and would like to know if I can fit a set of 29er wheels on it. I understand they don’t want to rub etc but will it still ride ok or change angles to much? It’s cheaper than selling whole bike and buying a 29er if it works. Thanks for any help.

If you swap both wheels with 29", no angles will change, yet the bike will sit higher and you'd have to lower the travel of the suspension.
