I have (3) mtb's, a 26x4 fat tire, a 27.5x3 plus and a std 29er and all three are for different rides.
Basically, the fat bike is for snow or muddy rides, the 27.5 is my new "go to" bike and the 29 for fast rides on flowing trails.
I think the OP is asking what makes these bikes different and the best answer that I can offer is the 26" turn faster but do not roll as easily over some obstacles on the trails. Most modern bikes are 27.5 or 29" but I think there are a lot of good 26" bikes out there and they are better than riding nothing.
Go ride a few bikes and get what feels good under you and don't worry about trends or fads, get what works for you.
