Anyone ride their Rune in both setups? Mine is currently a 26 and I run a fairly tall tire(2.4 Conti Trailking ft and rear). I'm considering switching to 650b but I'm not sure if its worth the cost of new wheel's and tire's to change. Both of my fork's I have will run a 650b tire with no issue's. I did some checking and it seem's 650b tires actually measure between 27.75 tall and 28.5 tall while my current tires are a hair over 27.5 tall. Thats not a huge difference in OD, even the taller tires seem to be only a inch of height difference.
So for those that have rode both setup's on the otherwise same bike. Does it roll over stuff better? Roll faster? Feel less playfull than the 26? I'm looking for direct comparison pro's and con's. Its good bit of money to make the change and while I'm happy with my current setup its kinda heavy. I started looking at lighter wheel's and well now would be the right time to change if I'm going to.
