    Litespeed MWC

    This wasn't mentioned in the MTBR Interbike coverage, but Litespeed has a line of bikes that are convertible between 26" and 650B (oh what innovation!). It's called the Multi Wheel Compatible" wheel system, or MWC.

    Honestly, I don't get it

    Better to have and not need it, than to need it and not have it.

    I think Litespeed's (or rather the latest owner group) reputation will still be the big roadblock, and the 650b marketing won't do anything. Look at some of the comments on the sites with the news. Competitive Cyclist has been able to sell some Litespeed road bikes due to great pricing and their return policy, but that seems to be the only reason some would take a chance on Litespeed. Lifetime guarantee? Sure, I'll bite.
