    New question here. 650b wheel+tire radius?

    Does anyone know the radius of a 650b complete wheel with tire? Looking to measure my chainstay & seat stay area to find out if a 650b will fit. Also, what tire are you using and approx width of tire?

    Thanks.

    It all depends on the tire, but they're not called 27.5" wheels for nothing.
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    Quasi-Moto = 699mm

    Neo-Moto = 703mm

    And for radius, multiply by 0.5

    Height and width depends on tire size:

    Quasi-Moto = 699mm x 52mm, 650b x 2.0

    Neo-Moto = 703mm x 58mm, 650b x 2.3

    Don't forget that 27.5 inches is the approximate diameter of the TYRE not the WHEEL.
