    Specialized 650b/27.5" Rumor

    Did anybody else see this photo on Twitter? Looks to be a page from Specialized's dealer site showing 27.5" tires for 2015. I hope this means they might be making a 27.5" bike as well. My next bike will be a 650b and lets hope it will be a Specialized, dunno if I can wait till 2015 to buy a new bike though!

    Took the image down. Sorry guys.

    Interesting. We need to confirm those part numbers. We need a mole to infiltrate a specialized shop. Any takers?

    A 275 Enduro is a no brainer. Sign me up for next season.

    While I love the big 29" hoops, there are drawbacks beyond just the chainstay issue.

    I didn't see the picture posted, but I just took a look on the dealer site and no such thing is showing. Part of me thinks it could be bogus anyway because I can't see them revealing 2015 stuff when 2014 stuff hasn't dropped yet. A 650b bike would be interesting from them, but with all the marketing and effort they're putting into pushing 29ers, I don't think it will happen anytime soon, if at all.
