    New question here. What is your 650B wheel diameter with tire installed?

    I just installed Conti TK 2.4 on my 26" wheelset (DT Swiss EX 5.10). To my surprised it measures 27.25". I am curious how far I am off from real 650B wheels?

    Thx for the linky. Looks like most 650B wheel/tire are measured at 27.5" to 27.8". Not that much different from mine.

    "Brand, Model (Nominal Size) Rim: Measured Dia. x Measured Width

    Maxxis, Ardent EXO (27.5x2.25) Flow EX: 27.88 x 2.29
    Kenda, Nevegal (27.5x2.35) Flow EX: 27.75 x 2.43
    Schwalbe, Hans Dampf (27.5x2.25) Crest: 27.75x2.25
    Pacenti, NeoMoto (27.5x2.1) Flow EX: 27.63 x 2.21
    Pacenti, NeoMoto (27.5x2.3) Flow EX: 27.56 x 2.41
    Kenda, Nevegal DTC (27.5x2.1) Crest: 27.53 x 2.24"

    Good rear tire

    I like the rim-tread height on the 26" 2.4 TK.

    It would be a nice tire upscaled for the 650b wheel, if it had the same rim-tread height.

    What is your 650B wheel diameter with tire installed?

    ZTR 355 rim with Pacenti Neomoto 2.25. = 27.5"

    WTB laserdisc trail rim with Pacenti Neomoto 2.1 also = 27.5"
    Old enough to know better. And old enough not to care. Best age to be.
