#!markdown Yep good point. What I meant was that possibly as more standards get introduced to the market, a major consumer trend may be harder to nail down. 29+ and 27+ seem more geared towards niche riding than trying to revolutionize the industry. So unless most riders want their 6″ AM bikes to have a fat bike feel, these wheel sizes will merely present themselves as options when perusing the buy and sell on pinkbike. Or maybe the whole thing will flop and go away Bear in mind, I do believe that consumers decided that 650b was legit and provided a better fit and feel for many riders. Which is why the industry went that way. Adjustable rear axle on the other hand could be interesting to watch in the future.
