I have The Crow specs posted on my site.

With my samples (one 26" & one 29") the 26' tire is higher volume than the 29er. :eek:

That is cool. 29 incher tires should be quieter in my opinion. :thumbsup:

Shiggy, you use a wider rim for the 26" measuring, right?
Yes. Though the 1.8mm difference in inside width can not make a 2mm change in casing width and height.

The flat bead to bead width of the 26" and 29" tires is different by ~8mm.

I do not general measure the bead to bead because it can be difficult to flatten most casing to get an accurate number.

The size difference of the mounted tires is enough to see and feel without calipers.

Thanks for the clarification!
The minute weight difference seems to indicate that the 29"er is build not only stronger but also smaller or thinner.
