For goodness sake, what is the size in ETRTO standards?

Is it just 40x622 - or is it some godawful new standard for rim size that nobody will ever stock?

All this vague marketing talk of 29", 26", 29", it's just confusing, opaque, and completely unnecessary.

There is another issue. My gravel runs as a winter road bike or off-road and I have two sets of wheels to cater for that. Going 750d means having 2 bikes, not 1.5.

Its insanity.  The nichest of niches.  Just tolerate slightly wider tyres at 700c, or run inserts or try suspension.
