What do people in the Industry really think about the mountain bike and 650b wheels?
An interesting article that gives us an inside look at what a number of product and marketing managers think about the 650b wheel size that everyone seems to be talking about. Check out the link below, as some industry insiders answer some insightful questions asked by Tyler@BikeRumor:
“Seems there’s no hiding from 650B discussions these days. Depending on who you listen to, the sudden explosion is either driven by consumers looking for something better or industry folks trying to drum up new business. In reality, both are true, and 650B / 27″ / 27.5″ mountain bikes are headed to bike shops this fall. What’s surprising is the “explosion” part. Unlike the slow adoption and cautious market entry many brands practiced with 29ers, no one wants to be left behind the latest craze.”
