    26 x 2.7 tire makes it basically a 650b/27.5 height. But slightly fat. I dunno.

    how does the 2.7 width suggest anything about the sidewall height to make it 650b-ish?

    Because that is what the articles have been saying.

    sounds about right. 2.5" hookworms run just over 27"

    hope it's got a nice soft casing, hope they grow to 3"

    Plus the pun of the 2.75" (not 2.7") nominal width.

    The likely do measure ~27.5" OD. The Gazzalodi 26x3.0 was a touch over 28" tall.

    It's 26" with 2.7 tires, not 650b.

    Just like fatbike wheels are 26" with 4" tires, not 29". There IS a difference.

    I wonder if these will fit on a normal rim? I'm about to get a Transition Klunker that comes with 2.5" Nevegals, might try these out. You know, like a year from now when it is possible to buy them individually

    If the picture is accurate, it looks sort of like a “Nate Lite” tire. Would be nice if they made them also in 24" size as well.

    you haven't been noticing all the people over the years who've asked for a 3" supple casing'd tire for summer riding?
    they were THAAAT close!
    (but to be fair, a lot more frames can squeeze in a 2.7 than a proper 3" tire)
    I think I wanna throw them on my Ute! The gazzis are too tight a fit.
    If steel is real then aluminium is supercallafragiliniun!

    Oh damn!!!! Thats what I'm talking about, another just right tire to fat out a cargo machine. The 29x3 knard rubs a little bit in the ute, This might just be the answer. Good thinking Byknuts!!!!

    How did you come close to fitting that? I wasn't able to fit an Ignitor in the back. Plenty of width, but the rack?
