    Will there be a factory fs 650b xc bike?

    I dig the idea of the 650b. It's a good compromise of a larger diameter wheel than 26 w/o being goofy looking like a lot of (especially small and medium frames) 29ers. And I'm definitely glad all you hardtail guys are getting your 650b fix, but I want a xc based full suspension frame. 5 inches of travel is too much and 0 inches is too little nobody seems to do 3 inches anymore.
    I'm not into alot of tinkering and I don't like two different wheel sizes. So is there any hope for me whatsoever?

    I think the Ventana El Bastardo can be ordered with 4" rockers.

    Haro is releasing a 650 sonix. But it's 5 inches, I think.
