    650b tires on an Anthem 29er...pros and cons

    Been reading more positive opinions with the 27.5 tires and it got me thinking what would my '11 Anthem 29er be like with a set.
    Anyone try this yet?
    Wonder how the suspension react with the slightly smaller tires?
    Thanks for the opinions.

    I'm no expert, but I can't think of any pros, other than wheel weight. Cons - more pedal strikes, by lowering the BB. With the longish cs, wb on the Ax 29, I doubt it would improve handling/playfulness at all. Stepping backwards, and wasting money at the same time....bad idea IMO.

    Where 650b shines, is improving roll over, etc for a compatible 26er frame, with just a wheel upgrade.
