Bit of a boat anchor though init? Just shows how capable a 5" 29" can be I guess.

The 29's look stunning apart from the non internal dropper routing.

27.5+ Tires - Taipei Show 2015
Yes and measured at the casing there is even more clearance with current bikes. 2.8" is apparently the sweet spot weight/grip.

Actually the current Pike 29" is fine with 2.8" tires as is the clearance on many frames. I've ridden bikes that have chainstay/seatstay contact issues and that's only going to get worse with wider axles.

27.5+ Tires - Taipei Show 2015
I haven't ridden them so I can't comment. You can't compare them with old tires/rims as we have tubless and far lighter rims these days. People I know who have ridden them say they're another world grip wise and similar rolling resistance to a normal 29" wheel as the OD is close to 29"/2.3". I have no problem with it as it makes a lot of sense in that you can have one bike with two sets of wheels (one 650b and one 29") and have a very versatile bike. The problem I have is the BS axle standards that aren't really required to un 2.8" which is apparently the optimum.

SRAM Announces New Hub Standards - Boost 148 and 110
deeeight, "The only people who will be affected by these new hubs are the people buying new bikes that are 29ers, expedition bikes, and fat bikes really" How much time have you spent on 650b+? I've heard from people who have that your comment above is rather inaccurate.
