    Weird.....

    So much for the Quasi being the smallest of the 650's! Just cheked it on my Laser Disc wheel in the back of the KHS. I had as much or more room with the 2.1 Nevegal.

    Looking at the brite side I will be way faster on it now!

    Just front. I figured the 2.2 would be too big. Have to check it out.
    I do like the pattern and volume of the Quasi. Sounds contrary but it should be good for winter trails to me anyway.

    It is in width, but I'm pretty sure it's the same height as a Neo 2.1and a Racing Ralph.

    Guess I was thinking they were going to be smaller. But since originally coming from using 700c cyclecross wheels and tires on 26" frames I'm ok with the low profile tire pattern. Looking back at some of the archived threads the IRC is probly the smallest knobby tread to use in a tight fitting retro fit application.

    With all this being said, I think I'm going to cry Uncle and order a 650B specific frame next week so I can finally run any size tire I want to!

    My guestimate was wrong . Just measured my one again and it's 2mm smaller in height than Neo 2.1.Which I'm sure is the same height as Ra Ra. Others are getting different measurements than me on the Quasi though?
