A 29er doesn't automatically mean it's a larger frame . I just bought a new 29er with a 17.5" frame.

Looks like I'm late to the party...this one is now showing to be $399. That seems crazy...

The part of frame sizing that matters most while riding is the "reach" or top-tube length. And if the frame is too short in forward reach to the bars then the rider would be wanting a longer stem. The longer stem is going to take the rider's weight off the rear wheel, causing less traction on climbs, and also it's harder for the rider to lift the front end over logs, ruts, etc.

29ers have longer top-tubes so that the bigger wheel/tire won't hit the rider's foot, and the overall effect also makes these 29ers a better fit for taller riders.

That seems like a very fair price, it's quite a bit less than an XR-Pro, though the XR-Pro also has rear suspension, ...and what look like better rims.

The Huffy has generous tire clearance for 2.3" tires. It's closest competition might be the Schwinn Boundary 29er for $199.
