27.5, 650b, Whatever It Takes

Today’s bootleg update from mountain bike racing’s world wide corner of the social media-sphere comes via Merida Bike’s (Spain) Facebook page

Translation: “Testing, testing… Hermida with a 27.5″

It seems that Jose Hermida (Multivan/Merida) is doing some 650b 27.5″ prototype testing. I suppose seeing Nino Schurter (Scott Swisspower) kick ass on 650b last season will have more than a few racers asking if plus/minus 1.5 inches will make a difference. It will be interesting to see if Hermida makes it to the starting line on 27.5″ bike and if any other racers start doing some “testing.”
