It is a sherpa, mk1 i think 29er.
I was wanting 27.5 and ive heard some 29ers can run the smaller wheel, nice to keep both options though.

Anyone have or had one ?.

I can rebuild the pro4 wheels larger but ive only a rigid carbon fork for 27.5 duties. it is 135mm rear, 44 straight, so I can run what Ive got. New forks and new wheels arent the option :?

I've got a Stanton, lovely bikes.
When you say some 29'ers can take 27.5 as well, I think what you mean is that some 29'ers can take 27.5 plus sized wheels i.e. 2.8" or larger which preserves the external wheel size to within an acceptable amount for BB height etc.
No experience of the Sherpa, but if it's a mk1 I doubt it's suitable for 27.5 plus but you might be in luck. Whether your fork is plus compatible as well I wouldn't be sure of.
