I did the same thing and truthfully I like them both about the same. I do like the fact that the 29er has disc brakes, but since I've converted them both to tubeless (first the 29er, then the 26") I really don't favor one over the other. I like them both. And since I was down to only four bikes before the 29er (from an all time high of seven) it's not like the extra bike is a luxury, it's more of a need.
