    27.5 x 2.6 on my 2019 Stumpjumper...

    I'm thinking about moving up to 2.6's on my Stumpy, basically just because I'm riding an ebike with 2.85's and I'm trying to make them as close to each other as possible. What are the downsides of doing this? Thanks!

    When I was on a 27.5, I got to where I only ran 2.6" tires. I found it to be the sweat spot in size. I don't know about Ebikes though, so I can't compare.

    I love the 2.85 on the ebike (Turbo Levo) but my gut was that 2.6 would be the "right" place on the spectrum to emulate the handling of the ebike on my Stumpy.... I want them to complement each other as much as possible, grips, pedals, tires, suspension settings...

    What size tire are you replacing with the 2.6?
