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.

Commencal's Prototype DH Bike - Lourdes World Cup
Maelstorm is very similar accept shock driving linkage has shock at opposite end.

djm32 I guess not. Depends how fanatically you look at it. Brooklyn had a jackshaft(although the same effect). It's linkage was similar to the Comencal in having small links, but differant design(moto link?). Yeah Canfield similarity ends at the idler and axle path, Zerode same design as Commencal just executed differently. SUNN was also similar, so was GTs RTS, Lahar. All used the linkage pull rod as a chainstay though accept the BMW. So no not really seen Comencals shrunken linkage and solid swingarm before I can think of. Anyone else?

Franck djm35 could have said that better, as know it's not a totally new design, but it is an interesting execution of it. I can't think of many bikes that are "new designs" and that's because there's no need, when there's so many ways to optimize what is already available. and they're probably the best ideas anyway. Canfield is probably the least closely related idler bike and it doesn't predate other idler bikes anyway.

Will they wear out clutched mechs or cables prematurely due to chain growth below swing arm? Or can they rotate guide enough? Oldschool clutchless might be the go.
