Part of me hopes that by the time I get around to upgrading my Mk2 Nomad to Carbon, they'll still be 26in (and hopefully have introduce internal cable routing for stealth seatposts).

The other part of me is fully prepared for 26in wheels to go the way of the [insert obsolete item here e.g. Dodo, Dinosaur, Australian made Ford Falcon], and for 27.5 to replace them. Having not ever ridden 27.5, I have nothing to base this on other than a gut feeling.
