I am 6"2" and 240 lbs and have had my 29er for a month. I love it and would never go back to a 26er. My bike has a 21" frame and I feel like a kid again when I am on it. It is more fun to ride for sure. I did have to raise the handlebars, but I sit higher and can ride faster. Also, on rough trails it is smoother. I can ride without holding the handlebars with no problems as it is more stable. The only problem might be getting parts and that my son likes it also.
