    what about the brakes do they reach the rim? I have a VooDoo DJab 26er Ti and It looks like one would fit also. But I keep thinking that brakes wouldn't adjust that far down. Got to try it........
    I need to ride more and work less.

    with the XTR v-brakes it didnt look like it would work, but these rims tested on has not a real braking surface, so if that would have been a bit wider and maybe som small amount of modifying of the brakes I dont think its impossible

    650B, the RC cola of the bike world:



    I have to admit, I stole that line from Grant Petersen of Rivendell fame.

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

    I love it! I've converted a Rush and had a Flash 29er. Didn't like it because it felt too big for me (I'm 5'6) and I kept getting pedal strikes. A conversion seems like a match made in heaven for me. Too bad Cannondale no longer offers a Flash 26 in the states..

    If you have Stans 355 rims you can use Paul mx v-brakes that will adjust up to have pads hit the rim surface. Velocity may have some earlier style hoops that are rim brake compatible.
    Wait whuuut, who did he tell you that!?!?....

    I got a ride in on Friday. Bike is absolutely insane. I could not be happier. It weighs 26.5lbs as it sits in those pics. With lighter tires and a carbon seatpost rather than the dropper it could be sub 25lbs. I think in that setup it would be an amazing xc bike.

    @morphtcat: Nice setup, my next project is based on that frame, do you have a picture of the rear tire clearance ?

    Did the frame weight as low as expected?

    Thanks!!!

    No sorry I don't, but it's pretty good clearance. The frame came in at about 1050 grams if I recall correctly. The entire bike is around 21-22lb. If I could use a SID fork, the bike could get down to about 20lb, maybe less.

    I measured the clearance - it is 1.5 inches.
