So the 27.5″ Minion and Highroller are coming before the long awaited 29″ versions?

Make more sence to have the minion in the 27.5 not the 29, since 27.5 is going to be your mid travel trail bikes, while 29 will only ever be XC travel. 29 has a smaller compound high roller avaliable

Any idea when the 27.5 will hit the stores ?
