In road mode today - ironically, the road had so much gravel on it, I probably should have just rolled my 35s..

This bike handles really well however and wherever I'm riding it.

67mi, 4K ft. with temps hovering 30 - 34 deg most of the day, popped up to 40 toward the end.

Gorgeous views, outstanding apple fritter.

It was a good day on the bike.

Props on the raw weather ride. Always love how many shades of green the PNW can count, even in Feb.

Wearing AR 4.5s courtesy of BetaHat.. The 28c Schwalbe's balloon out to like 31-32mm on these rims, and I felt like I had them over-inflated at 63psi. They are very comfy and confidence-inspiring wheels for sure. Though to be honest, I picked them up expecting to use them on the Argonaut project I pulled back from and wasn't planning on using them on the Parlee - I'm wanting to run 40s on here, and there's no point in doing that on an aero rim - these belong on a more all-road oriented setup, imho (and according to ENVE). They sure are sezzy though. And fun.

I run this exact setup on road, and I also have 650b and 700c wheels for the Chebacco. So I have three bikes in one, literally for all conditions. This bike is a chameleon with different wheelsets. I do generally run closer to 80 psi on the 28's, but when the tarmac is questionable, I have dropped down to 60 psi.

What's your 650b setup? Tires?

Thanks!

I have the XTR M9020 which are 24mm id, and run the WTB Resolute 42. I can run these at 30 psi, and they are my go-to's for mixed conditions.
The 12X142 and the 15X100 TA axle sizing is the key to my universal wheel switching. Too bad Parlee went with the trend of 12X100 on later Chebacco forks.

Can always use an adapter. https://www.ebay.com/itm/MTB-Mountai...e/273341772051

Interesting. I think the new Parlee fork actually has room for 15mm end-caps, or seems to anyway. So, I may be able to run those wheels on it with the right 15mm-to-12mm adapter.

Do you have a pic you could share showing the clearance?

I assume BB drop hasn't been an issue with the 42s?

Oh man that looks gorgeous with the 4.5 ARs! Great, now I want some deeper section road disc wheels.

BB Drop is not an issue for me and an added bonus is there is less toe overlap.

A couple of not-so-good photos. There is about 4mm per side clearance, and these tires are about 43 mm now.
