    Saw a kid riding a bike today that was far too big for him, you know, the you’ll grow into it/hand me down bike. Thing is, my first thought was, is that a 29er?! 😆

    As are 26″ and 700c. Not sure about 29″ though, they smell funny

    650b is just a way for the the bike industry to revert to 26″ wheels with fewer blushes.

    Got a 26er, got a 29er – currently debating whether to get a 36er.

    Was gonna post a clever post on the pointlessness of 650b as a modern standard, but then thought better of it.

    Carry on though, by all means! I’m not judging, after all its the marketing men that are driving this standard, not the general buying public actually asking for it…

    I’ve changed my mind! 29″ wheels rock. I am no longer sure about 26″ and 650b ones now though…

    Thats good, hopefully there wont be a new better standard you like more as you may feel a tool asking the mods to change your username.

    What wheel size for …….

    when will 750b wheels come out on sale? Or are they 650b2’s? 😆

    24″ for me. Just doing the rear wheel slackens the head angle and lowers the bottom bracket as an added bonus 🙂

    Guys who are hating I.e Mboy & b45er – just leave it, of course you’re entitled to your opinion but both pointless threads when the OP is obviously chuffed with his new bike/wheels – spread the love of riding
