What are your thoughts on 650b? This is your first right?
First 650b, not my first 27.5".

If I were riding the Zanc blindfolded, I could definitely tell the difference between 650x47 and 700x35. The Elwoods have a super smooth ride quality to them... what you'd expect, I guess, from a plump, low-tread, supple tire. I think the biggest surprise for me is how nimble the bike is in 650b mode... really easy to make quick changes in direction. Not sure if that's due to the frame geometry, wheel size, or tire... probably some combination of the three.
