It's just a old standard at this point. 27.5 is a gimmick they used to milk to the consumers wallet and rid the scene of a near endless supply of 26" parts. Just like plus bike tire sizes and wide rims are new but I have 35mm wide rims and 2.7-3.0 tires from back in the day still. They change the market standards to keep people spending.


I ride a Dartmoor Primal 27.5+ I built with a new frame and parts sourced off ebay cheap. If I have $700 into I'd be surprised.
