 what does the poll have to do with dual slalom? I do agree that naming needs to be sorted out though

 Its cause its the giant dual slalom and giant is going all 650b..well thats my guess anyways
  • 6 1
 Call it 27.5, the other mtb wheel sizes are named by their diameter in inches so why not 27.5"?
  • 7 1
 650B rolls off the tongue better

 Cause its diameter isn't actually 27.5 inches.

 Lets not call it anything, close our eyes and maybe it will just go away.

 Yes, closing your eyes and hoping your problems will magically disappear is always a great strategy....and 650b/27.5 isn't even a problem Facepalm
  • 2 1
 But it's diameter isn't 650b either.

 Every rim is different, not every 26" rim is exactly that diameter, some are a little smaller, some are a bit bigger. same goes for 29". And fun fact, 650 is the outside diameter of the tire in milimeters

 @mnorris122, apparently it is a first world problem

 mnorris122, 650mm is only the outside diameter with the 33mm tire it was originally designed for long before being used on mountain bikes. With a modern mountain bike tire it would be considerably bigger.

 Dual S, sic always was always is, should never have been dropped from WCs either, always some of the best racing! Surprised though with Men's winners!
