Pinkbike Talks 27.5 Wheels with Kirk
It's hard to beleive that only a few years ago Kirk was pretty much the lone voice arguing the benefits of the 650b mountain bike wheel size. The intervening years have seen 29ers come to prominence and it would seem finally hit their design ceiling with the last batch of 5" travel all-mountain bikes. And now 2014 seems poised to properly launch the 27.5 revolution, if not finally proving Kirk's vision right, then at least giving it fair representation in the marketplace so that riders can decide once and for all on the ultimate mountain bike wheel size.
This February, Kirk had a nice conversation with Pinkbike.com about the role Pacenti Cycle Design has played and will play in the story of 27.5 wheels.
