    Is there a forum for 27.5 mid-fat ?

    I just ordered the 2017 Marin Pine Mountain 27.5 Plus

    Mid-fat? Are they going to have a classification for every tire width now? Sage is right. The name of the bike you just typed even includes "plus". Interesting bike.

    Eventually, if this keeps up, they could start using numbers to describe the tire size

    It's more about bike geometry and picking the tires for the local trails.

    That'll never work. We need code names. For everything. (e.g., boost, enduro)
