With Kenda announcing they will be entering the 650B market and supplying, possibly, 3 tires, one thinks GT would quickly jump on board. It seems GT tends to specs good ol' Kenda rubber on A LOT of their bikes. Their 29'r offering was pretty weak, with the Peace 9'r. An EBB equipped frame without a disc brake option....very odd. They could have very well used less expensive horizontal drops, a cross over from their BMX line perhaps. Oh well, I'm not designing the bikes, so who am I to talk. I digress... GT, wanna hop aboard the 650B Members Only club? C'mon in, the water's fine!
