I'm just passing through (and maybe there is another thread showing it) but somebody show me a pic of the new R bike wearing 21/18 shoes so I can concentrate on work. All of these R pics ain't wearing 21/18 (although the Conti site I linked does show 21/18 Tubeless is available). All these pics show the same wheels and tires, which I find highly suspect. An R coming standard with Trail Attacks? Are you kidding me? lol I just have a real hard time believing it.
Just by comparing the photos it looks like the wheels are larger diameter on the R (for sure the front but also the back). Look at the distance between the rear brake rotor and the wheel, clearly there is a greater distance on the R. Maybe someone with photoshop handy can create a gif with the two bikes pics resized and overlayed
