Merida Big Trail - Review
Depends on the tire and rim models. Some "plus" tires are smaller in diameter, some are larger. It really comes down to specific comparisons. Also wider rims flatten out the tread profile (for more width on the ground) at the expense of overall diameter / tallest point of the tire. The same tire on three different width rims could give three different inflated widths and diameters. Surly has a tire specs chart for their models on their website that includes these numbers if you want to go read specifics. WTB's Trailblazer 2.8 tires in particular though are NOT really plus tread widths. The 2.8 is the casing width (the actual tread width is only 2.35), when inflated on a i45 rim. They're meant for converting existing 29er frame/forks to a 27.5/650B plus setup. The widest part of the tire being the casing sidewalls, are at a point further from the bridge point between the fork legs / chain & seat stays than the tread area. The actual overall diameter of the tires is about 28.5 inches. I tried them on a set of narrower rims on my Salsa Spearfish and Reba fork and it cleared fine, but it dropped the BB height and pedal clearances more than I would have liked. Its more air volume yes, but not actually more traction beyond what you get from running a bit lower pressure. For real plus riding fun, you want more tread width.

Merida Big Trail - Review
This is basically Merida's version of the Specialized Fuse 6Fattie (which also has the oddly shaped chainstay yoke, although theirs is split with an empty center void to let mud flow thru). Merida of course owns 49% of Specialized and does most all of their frame manufacturing for them. http://www.bikemag.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/BIKP-160300-BTST-07.jpg http://www.bikemag.com/gear/review-specialized-fuse-expert-6fattie/#B7fZRujQZkHV0EUl.97

Merida Big Trail - Review
@justwan-naride: Actually bottom outs should never happen if you run pressures appropriate to your weight, tire width, and trail conditions. If you're bottoming and denting the rim, you're too low. With a 3.2 inch tire footprint, and 210 pounds rider weight, i've run 10-11psi front and 12-13psi back all summer and fall on rocky and rooted trails every ride. Never dented my rims once.

tubeless with sealant, my only flats come from when the sealant dries out, which for me Vee Rubber Trax Fattys on WTB i45 Scraper rims, came after FIVE months of riding.
