totally NOT STOKED with 650. when the world shifts to it, I will either be the only bike company still making 26" bikes or I'll just give it up and go make moonshine in the woods. 650B is not a wheel size, it is a math problem

Yup, I saw Maxxis, Scwalbe and Kendas at Eurobike....they are all supposed to hit the consumer market in December. I cannot wait!!! Been running limited tires for a bit and I'm ready for some serious tread! I think Schwalbe's are already out but they are waaaay too expensive!
Seems like the dominance of the 26in wheel size in mtb nearing its end. Question is who will be the 1st racer to do a world cup dh in 27.5?
Oh yea, thanks
Didn't someone already run a 650B in the WC? Or maybe I'm thinking of Rampage.....
650b isn't going to be taking over anything with tread patterns like that. I think I saw those same tread patterns on the fresh Cheng-Shins that Nerve is running on their '13 Walmart line.
The one on the left has spider webs. Obviously you missed that. Spider webs are what's going to send this 650 thing into the homes of every bike rider out there in 2013. And no spider webs don't work on 26" wheels. That's why 650s are so brilliant.
I wasn't allowed to take photos of a lot of what I saw. There will be more than enough 27.5 tires to choose from.
Thanks for the words/photos Lee! Looking forward to more!
