    Now that is nice. I don't love curvy tubes all that much but being a long-time YBB owner, I bet it is a sweet ride. Just a year ago or so Jon was all anti-650b; how times change!

    Noice! Looks like Mavic isn't missing the boat this time. I like the understated debut at NAHBS, too.
    All mountain bikes are all-mountain bikes.

    The Fox looks like a new XC 100mm fork for 2014 as well.

    I'm not into the bend tubes/post either but I'm sure it has an awesome ride. This looks better to me.
    Yes, I'm derailing my own thread.

    I like curved tubes when they're functional, or even aesthetic when it's appropriate. (ie, a cruiser-styled bike with flowing lines)

    Note the difference in the ratio of seat tube to exposed seatpost between these frames. The softail shock requires a longer seattube for the shock mount and the curved top tube gives back some standover clearance. My 650b Curtlo softail is the same...a guy my height has to have some love for curved top tubes because standover is often a concern.

    Not a fan of wheels with proprietary parts personally, but it's nice to see another major player producing 650b goods!

    Agreed, but mavic stuff is usually pretty bombproof. Overbuilt I would say compared to a lot of the stuff out there. Nice to see mavic going into production with 650b...now if only they would start making their rims wider.

    That's correct, because I called them about 18 months ago and they stated they would not support that wheel size even as a custom frame. In my opinion, Moots blows......

    Yeah me too... I went with Kish. Look up '650b' on the forums on the Moots website, hilarious.
