The last bike I built from scratch had 203mm titanium disc brakes, and 26" wheels. It stopped on a dime, and that same dime could buy a dozen tires, figuratively speaking. I like good brakes, and lots of options for inexpensive tires. I haven't found that to be so easy with 27" wheels. That may be why my Univega is in pieces in the corner of my office.
