    Is Santa Cruz going to make a 650B specific frame?

    I realize they have a Blur model that is 650B compatible but is SC going to make a 650B specific frame? Is there anything other than rumors at this point?

    They have an ad in Bike magazine saying that they are making a big announcement on April 1, 2013. I wonder if it will be a 650? It's odd to choose April 1 since it's April Fool's Day, so maybe it'll just be a fake announcement.

    April 1, it'll be that they have a bike that will run all three wheel sizes
    Hardrock 29er, Niner EMD9, Cannondale F29, Camber Expert, 650b Nickel all gone.

    When SC announced the Highball they did it on April 1st a couple of years ago? My personal guess is that it will be a 27 with 150mm in the back. We will know soon enough!

    I love SC bikes, but I am afraid it may have too low a BB for where I ride...kinda like the blur pre-650b conversion.

    The low BB made them perfect choice for conversion.

    It's a blur lt 150mm. A girl has been riding one painted as a current model testing it for some time.
