    The 650b tire dimensions thread

    Another recent thread, here, lists actual weights for 650b tires. This thread is for listing the actual heights and widths of tires, so people can get an idea what will fit their set-up.

    I propose the following format for posting:

    Tire:
    Diameter (mm):
    Width of tread (mm):
    Width of casing (mm):
    Rim used, and its internal width:
    PSI when measured (suggest 25):
    Any fork fit notes:
    Any frame fit notes:

    I was proposing something similar.

    I will add:

    Width (mm) of casing and of tread.

    Also, there should be a standard PSI the measurements are taken at. 25 PSI as you suggest is ok. I'd say chose something between 25 and 35. Many people are using pressures lower than 40-45 PSI now but not eveybody is going sub 20 PSI.

    Optional (but very helpful) frame and/or fork fit photo's showing clearance AND comparing clearance on the same bike , whenever possible.

    Edited first post to add those suggestions.

    I don't want people to feel like they need to write an encyclopedia entry, so I'm assuming some folks will post even if they're not filling out every line and I think that's fine. Partial info is better than none.
