    WTB Bee Line 650b TCS 2.2 Tire?

    I know a lot of new 650b tires are popping up. Anyone have any experience / info with this WTB offering : Universal Cycles -- WTB Bee Line 650b TCS Tire . I am looking for tubeless tire for hardpack. Wonder if this tire is the same volume as the Wolverine 2.2?

    That tire's patterned after WTB's Nineline:
    WTB Nineline 2.0 29?
    And it's confirmed by this article:
    WTB?s new offerings for 2014 | IMB | Free Mountain Bike Magazine Online
    It's funny that a few online shops already have that listed when it's stated release is July 2013.
    Better to have and not need it, than to need it and not have it.

    So if there were a 26" version would it be called Sixline?

    I saw the bee line at Frostbike, and really liked what I saw. similar to the nineline, but with an extra set of knobs toward the outside. Looked fast rolling. I am working on a DJ-ish build, and they make a lot of sense for that kind of project. In theory.
