    Is 100mm travel what yours has front and rear ?
    Is the BB height with the 650b wheels 13.5" ?
    Cheers.

    Luke,

    The BB height, uncompressed, is 13.4". It's probably closer to 13 or 13.2 when I'm actually riding.

    It's an incredibly fast bike.

    Firstly, awesome builds, I'm loving this wheel size. Love the Rawlands, built one for the wife and that was the pinch to get me involved with 650b. Here are a couple pics of my 650b MUSS. It's been a lot of fun on some of the trails, but I also use it as my city speeder. I love that Troll, very nice do it all go anywhere visual vibe to that bike. Quick question to the XC blur poster, FNFAL, what is the make of that blue seatpost and where can I get one? Happy rollin'

    Yep, 650b front and back! I like colorful bikes. I've had Gold and Red seatposts. But I felt like the Blue would stand out against the red decals.

    Beautiful Bianchi! Been wanting a SS Bianchi for a while.

    And yes, as stated it's a Woodman. I honestly thought about going with the carbon version, but didn't feel like the weight savings were worth the price difference. Plus I've used them for a few years and they have been solid for me.

    Thanks for the kind words for the MUSS, she's been a fun ride for the past few years and putting the 650b on it has only increased its fun value. Also, thanks for the info on the post. Unfortunately I am looking for a blue post in 26.8 for my RM blizzard and it appears they do not have those around. Which is a bummer since I like the Woodman and Thomson posts.

    It's not a Woodman or Thomson, but it's blue. I almost picked one up for a bike I'm building with a 29.4mm sea tube but went with a shim instead.

    This one did catch my eye, and I've used UNO in the past on other rides and found them to be fine. However, I want some bling for my blizzard. I thank you for the head's up though. One might think that with all the color out there I could find the post in my size, but sometimes the search goes on. Eventually, I may have to settle for a silver Thomson.

    From this pic I would say no or VERY tight with a small tire. Maybe that's a big 26" tire on there so consider that as well.

    Thanks! Currently awaiting the arrival of a Hunter fork. Rick wrote last week so say there was a bit of a holdup with the paint so I'm crossing my fingers I get it soon.

    I also slapped on some Rotor cranks/chain rings/bottom bracket which were on another bike and it's quite lovely.

    Here's the beast with the old cranks:
