I would suspect you are more likely to get something confidence inspiring, that fits and that you crash a little less often if you go for bigger wheels.
err not sure I'm with you! I'm not against 29ers. If it works for you then go for the bigger wheels, that's fine with me.
But to say 29ers are more suitable for taller riders, are more confidence inspiring and will magically cause you to crash less is just rubbish.
Its down to the geometry of the bike whether it fits you or not. Nothing to do with smaller wheels. In fact the smaller wheels have less constraints on the geo so you could possibly argue that you can make a better fitting bike with 26 inch wheels.
Same goes for the confidence inspiring bit. You can quite easily make a very nervous and twitchy 29er and you could just as easily create a very stable 26er bike. Its down to the geometry which is formed from many more factors than just wheel size.
