I’ve never had carbon wheels before, so the difference in climbing and speed in general on the 700c is pretty huge. However, the 650b were amazing for a highly technical gravel race like Hilly Billy. I’ve done some civilized gravel centuries on the 700c on Schwalbe Pro-One 28mm (actually measure 30mm) and it wasn’t the *most* comfortable so I think I’m going to try some G-One 35mm tires on the 700c for D2R2 this year - see how it behaves on those descents. (Descending on the 650s is pretty fantastic...)
