I'm not exactly sure of HA. I trust the Chromagnons got it right. According to reviews, the alternating tooth profile does help to keep 10spd chains in place. It certainly is compatible. If you really want chain retention without a guide, 11spd is probably the safest bet. Google can help you find more answers. Don't hesitate on a clutch rear mech- it's crucial and you'll be ashamed for ever becoming so uncivilized as to not have one. 650b rolls a little faster. I like it a lot on technical climbs. As for the descent, the jury is still out for me. It's a little slower in the tech stuff, but it does have a bit of a steamroller effect when the trail gets nasty. Overall I like it on the hardtail, but I'm not in a hurry to convert my other bikes. If I lived anywhere other than PNW, it's more likely I'd be on big wheels full time.

It is a subtle, yet noticeably faster wheel than 26". A little slow in the tight stuff, but overall, for a AM/XC hardtail, considerably smoother with less rear wheel hang-ups. I'm not jumping on the bandwagon just yet for converting all my other bikes to 650 though. 26" will always have it's place as the most versatile size on full suspension bikes.
