I wonder if the Knobby Nic will be larget than the Kenda 2.35 or Neo 2.3. I can use my Lefty unmodded with those and don't really want to use spacers with the Knobby Nic.

Dum question I know, but will 650b fit on 26 frames and forks?
It depends on the frame and fork. It will comfortably fit almost all fox forks. Frames are a little harder. There is a sticky up top in this forum that has lists of confirmed frames and forks that fit. My Epic is a converted 26". Do you have a frame in mind?

Looking fwd to the nobby nic and revised Rocket Ron. Current Ron has great grip on most slow to moderate trails. Lower edge knobs will stop the squirm and quick loss of grip at higher speeds and hard pack trails. May just put it in that "do it all tire" in the 650B size.

Damn ... that Nobby Nic looks MASSIVE !
I would love to try the Rocket Rons since i hate the RaRa's as a front tire on my FS and the Rocket Rons offer better grip but .... them condom sidewalls :(

They do say that the sidewalls are now thicker but i wonder how much though ... really torn between them and some Neo Moto's.
