76er, 96er, or 650b/6er

I'm working on a winter project for a frame I've had for years. It's a Tange MTB frame from the early 90s. It requires a 1" fork so my choices are limited. I started with the parts bin and found a 700c Tange MTB fork. I trolled around a bit for an affordable 26" fork, but after reading about larger front wheel options, starting to consider the larger fork upfront. I didn't have a spare 29er front wheel but instead mounted a 27" wheel with 1 1/2" wide tires. Getting a 29er will allow of wider tires but about the same height and the 650b would only be at the most 2 inches smaller, I don't think 650b come in 1" steerers anyway.

Any thoughts on the geometry and ride? At the moment I have Nitto Swans as a single speed, but considering either drops or mustache bars with gears in the future.
