Pinkbike Poll: Which Major Component is the Least Evolved Part of a Mountain Bike?
I went chains because other than being thinner, to match thinner cog teeth and spacing between cogs, there hasn't been anything truly evolved about them in twenty plus years. They are still made of steel and using bushingless construction with pins between plates. We had companies doing side plate shape manipulations to claim to do X better than the other makers in 1993.

Ask Pinkbike: Choosing a Hardtail, Tire Width, and Stumpjumper Shock Options
The hardtail solution is to pick something that can also take a conversion width 650B plus tire as well as the 29er tire. The WTB Trailblazer 2.8 is meant as a conversion tire for 29ers and will fit many frames/forks so a second wheelset to swap in is all you need to go from a 40 miler 29er bike to a playful hardtail with bigger air volume tires and a slightly lower ride height.

Tinker would just become a brand ambassador for Cannondale, Tomac would start his own brand again, Missy is riding for John Parker's Underground Bike Works, Overend continues to be sponsored by Specialized. Both Ned and Missy are all about the big tires now. UBW only makes plus bikes and Ned likes to do ultra-enduro/epic adventure racing on fat and plus bikes.

Vee Tire Debuts Rail Tracker and T-Fatty Plus Tires for 2017
The T-fatty replaces the Trax Fatty, eliminates the 82mm / 3.25 width option, the silica rubber option, and also the 120TPI casing. There is a new Plus version of the Bulldozer model, available in 120TPI Silica though again no 3.25 width EXCEPT in a 29 Plus size. I assume they're eliminating the 3.25 x 650B width option because aside from Rocky Mountain and Specialized, no brands have designed their Plus frames to clear such tires, and those brands spec Maxxis or their own brand tires so the sales they hoped for just aren't there. I myself think the Specialized plus tires are shit so I replaced the ones that came with my Fuse with Vee Trax Fatty 3.25s. Used the bike and tires exclusively for five months and got zero punctures that ended a ride, and only minor sidewall scuffing to be seen, and I ride a LOT of rocky trails which have cut Hutchinson, Schwalbe, Continental and Panaracer tires under me before.

Pinkbike Poll: Will Your Next Bike be Downhill or All-Mountain?
So they get a few thousand votes for the categories who's advertising they need to sell... and none for what the vast majority of riders actually buy.

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.
