    I'm 200 pounds or so and run 32 spokes front and rear on my 650B using the Pacenti PL23 rims. As others have said, stick with 32 spokes or higher and you should be fine. The Velocity A23 rim seems to...

    No, just speaking from my car-free perspective. Not spending anything on a car allows one to spend a bit more on the bicycle -- if one so chooses.
  9. Thoughts on 650B for commuting/utility.

    Most perspectives on 650B are written by the Rando/BQ/Rivbike subcultures. I've had some time now to come to grips with the conversion to 650B for my everyday use, riding to work everyday and running...

    I agree. I have the last few issues of BQ. He shares his data, but I don't always agree with his conclusions. The data remains useful for making one's own choices.

    From the testing I've seen, 25mm 700C tires are fastest (and we see a lot/most of the pro riders going to 25mm tubulars this year), and 32mm 650B are fastest for that wheel size. Going bigger means...

    I was running those right before I switched to Hetres on 650B. I agree, the 25mm PRO4 SC is a great supple and light tire. Going to Hetres has been an incremental improvement overall, except...
