If you’re looking for a new mountain bike right now, you might be confronted with a choice that really has no wrong answer: buy a bike with 29-inch wheels for efficient, fast-rolling performance, or pick the burlier 27.5 size, in particular its monster truck-like Plus option?Our answer: don’t choose at all. Instead, go with a bike that fits both. One of our favorites is the redesigned Santa Cruz Tallboy, which got updated last year to work with both conventional 29-inch hoops and 27.5+ fatties. It’s a bike quiver of one, which we loved so much, we gave it an Editors' Choice award. And now it’s on super sale at Competitive Cyclist, with 30 percent off complete bikes and frames. Sale bikes include both versions.RELATED: The Editors' Choice-Winning Santa Cruz TallboyEver wanted to know how to set your own shock sag?
