    What's the best wheel size for e-bikes?

    26", 27.5" or 29"?

    From what I understand, it depends. If you are rocking lots of watts, a bigger wheel is essentially higher gearing, so more force on the drivetrain if youre using lots of boost. Im new to this though, and mostly going for a decent shuttle/approach/town run kind of bike. No singletrack plans.
    Id probably avoid 29s if I had a choice. However, Im building one on my old 9er, so well see!

    For most id go mullet 27.5r/29f. If someones below 5"5'ish probably 27.5 and 29 if theyre tall or its a trail/xc/alpine exporer
