    Cool-blue Rhythm Ok so what is/should be the proper designations


    27.5fr/rear- 650? 650B? 27.5? 27fiver?
    26rear/27.5front- B6er? 67fiver?
    26rear/29front- 96er? 69er?
    27.5rear/29front- B9er? 97.5er? 97fiver?
    Rule of thumb- 1 Lb. costs 2 sec. per mile of climb

    Agreed. So from here on let them be referred to as B6er and B9er. Any objections?
