Love the color! Try lowering your tire pressure more. I ride about 30 psi in my 650b x 48mm.

Agreed, even at 200 lbs, you shouldn't be running those at any more than 50 psi (even that might be too high, especially if you are running them tubeless).

Great looking bike by the way!

Thank you for the compliments. I'm very happy with the color.

I have been adjusting the psi and currently I'm at 35/40 on the 650b and 75/80 on the 700c.

How do you like riding the 650b wheels on your Diverge? Are you hitting the pedals on roots and rocks? When I tried 65b on my Diverge I was getting so many pedal strikes when riding trails that the annoyance was not worth the extra air volume.

I have not had any pedal strikes yet. I am not a strong use case since the majority of use is on fire roads and gravel trails without roots, rocks, or other strike targets. I don't refrain from peddling through corners.
