650B Think Tank
"After a full season on 27.5" wheels, I found that I was rolling over things more easily and carrying more speed than I did on 26" wheels. 29" wheels roll over things better than 650B's, but I am not a fan of the slow handling characteristics of most 29" bikes. I found that the flickability of 27.5" wheels are very similar to a 26"." Okay, got it. The problem: I could've told you that and i've never ridden a 27.5er myself. The theory makes sense, the bikes look good. Personally, i'm on-board the 650B ship. But why do i have this uneasy feeling about it? The arguments seem very redundant. Who are you trying to convince? Why are you trying so hard? Every time i read something about 650B, i never learn anything new... I guess i'm waiting for somebody to tell me something i don't know, a different perspective. Nope. It's very paradoxical. I was sold on the idea from the very beginning, yet i still feel like it's being shoved down my throat.
