I'm getting a lightweight wheelset for my hardtail (on-456 carbon). I'm currently using it with rigid exotic-carbon forks and singlespeed, and am planning on using it with skinny cx tyres for general xc and hopefully some cyclocross racing.
I just went to click "buy", but saw they have a 26" or 27.5" option...
I'm not sure what to get now!
From a quick google, it doesn't look like there are many (any?) 27.5" cx tyres around (found some 26" ones)which might be a problem.
Which should I go for? I'm pretty sure a 27.5 will fit in the frame no problem, and definitely will in the fork. But does that extra little bit really make any difference??
Or will it just be a pain in the a$$ as I wont be able to switch tyres with my other 26" wheels if I need to?
