Just measured my wheel with a 2.4 Rubber Queen at 27 inches so a 27.5 bike is going to feel pretty similar to what i have. I have had loads of bikes over the years and this one is the best yet, the ride is whats most important really but I do like to try and remain as future compatible as possible.
I was really interested to see if people thought the 26er second hand prices would drop massively soon dew to what seems to be most of the manufacturers going 650b. I know you can still get non tapered steerer, non dropper post compatible non iscg05 tab frames with rear QR drop outs god forbid lol but I wouldn't by a new one for a modern bike build as you would be buying a load of old kit to go on it (thats what our retro stuff for
As my bikes in quite new condition I figured it could be best to sell the frame now and switch to 650b to maximize my spend.
I wasnt keen on dropper posts to begin with due to cost and weight but i can honestly say they make my riding more fun now, as do the stiffer forks and and great sus on my frame, it all compensates against my crap skill level allowing me to go faster and have more fun
I still have fun riding a 1990s rigid still bike around the woods at sunrise but its a different fun than looning off massive jumps etc.
Obviouly its daft to think about this stuff too much as bikes are bikes but its fun all the same
