I have 2.4 tires on 26″ rims that measure 2.6″ wide and 27.25″ tall… so I guess I’m pretty much running 27.5
Going to keep riding my pre-2010 bikes until all this “innovation” madness slows down
I don’t really get it either, but I’ll save judgement for my first test ride. I tried a 29+ briefly once, and it wasn’t my thing. Grip for days, but felt massive. These 27.5+ are definitely lighter than their 29er counter parts, but I just can’t see how they won’t feel heavy with an extra 100grams or more per tire and another 50-100grams of rim weight. I remember 2.35 Nevegals feeling slow as hell on my old 26er. How’s this gonna feel? Like I said, though, gotta try first. Till then, I have fully embraced the 29er way of life.
