    Giant all in on 650B

    A strange move for the "giant," but good for 650B as a whole

    "Giant feels so strongly about the benefits of the 27.5-inch wheel that they forsee it eventually being the only wheelsize they offer. In fact, Giant already has a plan to slowly phase-out other wheel sizes, though the timetable for when this will happen is certainly not set in stone."

    I think it's strange considering the popularity of 29 inch hardtails.

    29er hardtails are only popular because they're better than 26er hardtails. But I ride my 650B hardtail more often than I did my 29er hardtail, so much so that I sold the 29er.

    650B bikes are now up on the website, including geo numbers. I was hoping the CSs would be shorter, but I suppose that's a limitation to the dual-link design.

    Strange to see only the Anthem 3 listed in the US website.
