Good existing answers on how. But I don't think a 2" knobby tire is the answer to "some rougher stuff - muddy bridleways, stony paths". Cyclocross racers handle those conditions and do so on 32 and 35. A 35mm tire will handle a stony path. As for mud if it is more than a couple inches it is going to be sloppy. A 2" tire is not going to save ...

I swap wheels between 700c and 650B on this bike when I go from summer to winter ( or as winter as coastal California gets. ) If I had disk brakes on both the back and front, it would require no adjustment at all. Disk brakes are relatively standardized and swapping wheels is pretty straightforward. The only issue I've ever run into is that not all ...

• Swapping the wheels usually needs a little derailleur and brake adjustment, no matter what. You still might need to adjust the high and low limit. And, reposition the caliper, if hydraulic. If mechanical, most have the pad adj knob, and barrel adjuster. • Since you're coming from a hybrid wheel, going wider is an issue with the seatstays. But, if you are ...

Great question! Looks like you've been very thorough. Handling should be unaffected, assuming your effective wheel diameter (including tyres) is similar. Same goes for braking forces - if you use rotors of the same diameter, the forces should remain the same. To make the wheel swap painless, I'd build the 650B wheelset around identical hubs to your ...
