Scott Launch 27.5" Plus Bikes
Like masturbating with a cheese grader. + tyres will be mildly interesting for a while, but generally painful. I'll say it again, please tyre manufacturers, make us some 2.3 and 2.5 tyres with same size center and cornering knobs so that when they're put on a wider than normal 35mm rim we get the same tread tyre shape as a current 2.3 Minion or Highroller on a 25mm rim. Then we'll get longer lasting tyres, stifer side walls, stiffer cornering knobs that won't tear, less burping, less pinch flats, better feel, less squirming. Don't jump straight to 45mm rims where they'll all be in landfill in 3 years time from lack of use. Give us performance, not cheap thrills without room to improve. + tyres are for novices to have fun, companies to make money and for companies to slyly get us ready for fat tyre electric bikes. Smell the coffee peeps, don't drink this cool aid shite. Unless you can afford a 5 bike + quivvvvver, then knock yourself out, they'll be fun at some things.

Pinkbike Poll: Will You Consider Buying a 27.5+ Bike?
Wide rim with sub 2.5 tyre with same size side knobs as middle so the tyre profile is the same shape as sub 2.5 tyres on skinny rims would suit me better. At least the same grip, less knobs bending so better grip, less tyre rolling so more grip, stiffer side wall so less flats and better grip, less knob tearing so better grip, less chance of burping. Not saying tiny knobs, just logical side knobs, current knobs seem to be designed for too narrow rims. Stale is fine for me. Nobody likes being robbed, pretty much what they're doing. There's better less profitable things available for customers. They won't give me them, then I won't give them my money. Vote with your money Peeps, don't buy this shit + nonsense, unless you're just trying to get some nooby, girlfriend, parent, kid whatever into MTBing as it'll be more fun if your a chump and that's it.

Pinkbike Poll: Will You Consider Buying a 27.5+ Bike?
"I'd go so far as to say that going from a standard 26" wheels (remember those?) to a 27.5+ wheel and tire combo makes a hell of a lot more sense than going from the former to a regular 27.5" setup, as there's little between the 26" and 27.5" sizes but a world of difference between standard wheels and plus sized wheels". UM NOBODY WA ASKING FOR MUCH DIFFERENCE FROM 26". "or maybe just a conversion from their current 29er, as a viable option?" THE GUYS THAT GOT SUCKERED INTO 29ER ARE PROBABLY BETTER CANDIDATES FOR IT.

Is the industry just setting up for the electric bike market. Making us all ride tyres designed for electric bikes, then there's less effort to push us onto electric bikes so to speak. Well played industry folks, well payed. I'll eat my tin hat if wrong.

So now you can have what they took from you when they made you abandon 26" buy buying something that doesn't perform as well. So you get fun back, with less performance.

Let it die. More efficient tyres or better performance used to be the balance of compromise conundrum, but wait, now the industry is giving you the choice to have neither, but wait, they're also throwing in some undamped suspension.
