27.5″ wheel bikes?

Check it out here:
Frameforum 650b/27.5″ mountain bike thread

My opinion is that this wheelsize makes a lot of sense – it’ll allow a lot of smaller riders to fit onto a bigger-wheeled frame without some of the sacrifices (long chainstays, weird angles, etc) that they run into on 29ers. More options is always a good thing!

So what do you guys think? Any opinions on this? Anyone want to jump in line to get the first-ever Waltworks Tweener?

Second, what’s the best name for these beasts?
-650b’ers (that’s the rim size designation)
-Something else


Shoulder news: My shoulder still hurts. A lot. I will go see Dr. Eric on Monday.
