He's the guy who orders Thai as mild plus plus, because medium is just too hot.

NO. NO NO NO. 650b would be MEDIUM, because 26ers are mild, and 29ers are hot. JESUS!

Ok. 5 of my bikes have tubes. 3 do not. 1 is a mix of front tube, rear tubless. Can you name what gets what? I'll give the winner a WTB Rocket V saddle and a race face 27.2 seatpost. No bs.
