As I’m sure you can tell from all of the coverage on Singletracks and other websites, 650b is all the rage… or is it? Some people claim that 650b/27.5 wheels are the perfect blend of 29in and 26in, and others claim that it’s all marketing hype generated by a bike industry that’s trying to stave off declining bike sales.
Instead of giving into the marketing hype or our own personal opinions on the topic, we’ve decided to collect some hard data from the most important source: you, the mountain bikers at large. We want to hear your thoughts on the wheel size topic. Love the new tweener size, hate it, or even think 29ers should never have existed in the first place, take our wheel size survey and give us your feedback: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1uWVPLLf-nS6o-PMTqcbGTsCxSYi95NgD12ASy-7nrlE/viewform
