    hmm a 26″ bike with big tyres -> 650b?
    Save your cash you can have both sizes with 1 bike!
    Forget angle set head sets just pup a different sized tyre on the front

    Flow rims and 2.4 Fat Alberts have a similar effect.

    i see they have had to re-evaluate what ‘massive tyre clearance’ means, using the American adopted “fag paper” standard

    Still waiting for 27.5+ … 29″ OD semi fat.

    I do quite like the look of it though. It could be an evolution of the UK hardtail? 26 inch wheels with big rubber making it a 650b/27.5

    Surly 26+

    Loads of rotational weight for a kind of, but not fat bike. Looks like when someone puts DH tyres on a trail bike to be more gnar. No ta.

    I guess you could call it a moob-bike, not quite fat but carrying a bit extra 😉

    The surly doesn’t look a whole lot different from my Mmmbop with 2.4 rubber on it on my superstar DH rims. A few of the riders in our local group ride similar things based on 456 frames, I don’t think changing tyres means you can call it a new wheel size!

    It’s a combination of big tyres and super-wide rims. I really like the idea and would love to give it a whirl
