I agree. That Moots is dirty.
I think we can agree 96/69ers are wrong.
Waiiiiiiit a second.
650B Tubs!At its heart is a specially built Scott Scale carbon fiber frame with 650b-specific geometry and thru-axles front and rear. Equipment includes a custom-built DT Swiss fork, a SRAM XX group, DT Swiss carbon fiber tubular wheels, 50mm-wide Dugast tubular tires and a smattering of Ritchey bits.
650b will take over all medium->small framed pure XC type bikes and 29er the large sizes
26 will stay trials/DJ/DH for a long time.

But calling them Twenty7.5? Ugh.
Dugast will make any size TUBULAR you like, I have a 26" and 700c pair.
I believe Tubular technology will make its way into downhill racing, less prone to flats and they only get one shot at a good time.
27.5".....I see SRAM just realesed a wheelset!
