Yeah, I'm kind of unsure of the math involved, because theoretically when it's helping the most is when your pedals are vertical, and the force is 0 Newtons, which theoretically you'd want to skip that point altogether. I don't really know the power output of cyclists or anything, but an oval chainring is an obvious improvement.

With regards to actual tire sizes, I've measured a lot of them and am curious about your Maxxis 2.8 measurement.
On 40mm inner width rims, after at least 24 hours of stretching, and measured at 20 psi with an inner tube, I measured 2.70" and 2.67" on two different Maxxis 27.5 x 2.8 tires. They have a tolerance on sizing, and tend to come in a little undersized, but 2.55" is pretty far off. Were your measurements immediate upon install, or at a low pressure? Not saying you're wrong, just curious of the details.

The Maxxis 27.5 x 2.6 tires I have measured on i35 rims were 2.50" and 2.52", measured at 30psi with an inner tube, after about 24 hours of stretching.


I do agree that more accurate tire labeling would be nice. To their credit, Maxxis is a lot better than they used to be. Those 2.8's are the farthest from true sizing I have seen from them on any semi recent design.

the specialized 2.6's (maxxis factory) measured bead to bead the same as conti trail king 2.4, which, in fairness are the biggest casing 2.4 you could previously find, but still. A moment of silence for numbers that mean something, please.
