    650B Stumpy

    Just thought I'd share my '07 Stumpy Expert that just got 650B's front and rear. I'm just an average rider at best, but the bike seemed better in every way. Climbed better, rolled over better, cornered better, even felt like it accelerated better. Bike computer verified I was considerably faster over the same course. This was all done in sub 30 degree weather. I enjoyed the ride so much I went back the next day when the wind chill was 16!

    Sweet!

    I don't even think anyone had tried that one yet. I know a ton of friends that have this bike and love it with 26's. I can attest to the benefits of 650 on the front. I can only dream of one for the rear of my Reign...

    Looks sweet, I also was happily surprised at how much better my bike felt with the larger wheels (and better tires)
