650b Tires From Specialized
According to Bicycle Retailer
, Specialized will be offering a number of tires in the 650b size. The initial offering is claimed to include the Fast Trak S-Works (in 650b x 2.0), the Ground Control (in 650b x 2.1), the Purgatory Grid (650b x 2.3) and the Butcher Control (650b x 2.3). A presta valve tube in the 650b x 1.75-2.4-inch size with a 40mm valve stem and a removable core will also be offered. MSRP on the tires: Fast Track: $65.00, Ground Control: $55.00, Purgatory: $65.00, Butcher Control: $55.00.
Is this a precursor of things to come? It would stand to reason that Specialized would want to have their own tires spec'd on their mountain bikes, and now that these tires are available we'd imagine complete bikes can't be too far behind. www.specialized.com
