I'm about your height 198cm and I got the Jekyll as seen above. It's natively a 26" wheel bike, but can and does fit 27.5" (which I'm, using) I went for some demos on some 29ers and felt too perched atop the bike for comfort. Just felt too tall an cumbersome. The 26" bikes I tried felt too small, like I was bunched up or something, especially after the feeling of a road bike. The 27.5" feels perfect on an XL frame (20") I feel within the bike, if that makes sense. Also if I want a bit more aggression and flick-ability in the bike I can just swap for some 26" wheels.
