    I'm not sure if we have a thread that's been buried, but let's see everyone's 650B bikes

    Trying to decide which set up I prefer on my Carver.

    TWith the Salsa Cromoto Grande fork like this?



    Or with this Scott Quiring built fork like this?



    I'm going to keep the 9 speed cassette on the rear wheel for sure as I can then swap these wheels back and forth between the Carver and my Marin Wolf Ridge.

    Very cool. I also had a Ted Wojcik D2R2 beast (did the 2009 D2R2).

    Anyway, lots of nice bikes here! I'm in cue with Chris Igleheart for a 650B 953 single speed. Hoping it will be done by the Vermont 50!

    Ventana Project-X650B

    Here is a picture of my Ventana 650B. This was a almost finished picture notice no rear brake. A few parts have changed. I really like the ride of the 650B wheel compared to the 29 or even the 26.

    Nice! Was this built 650b specific or converted from another wheel size?

    650B specific. It's a semi-custom with 25.3" Top tube, 2" Downtube, 490mm a2c, and 30.9mm seat post. Oh, powder coated in battleship gray. It's basically a AM 650B HT. It's a fast bike and I am totaly impressed with the 650B wheel type, Ole!

    Jeff, how does this climb in its current configuration? Also, what travel is your Fox fork?
    Thanks much.

    Soulcraft Plowboy 26" Conversion

    Built some No-tubes 355/CK wheels for my formerly-26" Soulcraft Plowboy. Same great Soulcraft ride and handling, made a little better with the 650b wheels. Really enjoying it. The (non-financial) cost to the conversion is loss of some of the sliding chain adjustment, making the gear choice/chain length dance a little more critical. Loving it!

    Lots of nice bikes here, 650b production, customs and converts.

    Here's an old shot of my OS Blackbuck, one of the five or so 650b frames that OS made. Currently I'm running it geared plus different fork, bars, stem, etc.

    I have two bikes with 650B-specific frames. The Groovy Cycleworks frame is my "built for fun" bike and does just about everything well. I posted pics when I first got it, but this one is from last weekend.

    The KHS is my "race" bike (this pic has been posted before). It's taken me to several near-last finishes - not the bike's fault. Having a suspension fork sure helps when taking a really bad line mid-race.

    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    Any pics of your Groovy from head on? Want to see how much room between tire and fork crown.

    So, the million dollar question: Does all of the theorizing pan out here? Does it ride like the dream that most of us have had? Any set backs that we didn't imagine?

    So, the million dollar question: Does all of the theorizing pan out here? Does it ride like the dream that most of us have had? Any set backs that we didn't imagine?
    This setup works for me. It may not be for everyone, but its what I roll. This frame use to run 69, which I thought was great. B9 is the bees knees for me. My goal is to get a custom frame specifically designed for B9 that will allow for a lightweight 80mm 29er suspended fork.

    Is it just me or does your tire clearence on that fork look insanely huge?

    It is insanely huge!

    Again - laffeaux's thread with his Groovy led me to give this a try. It is a Scott Quiring built fork - 490mm AC height. I've also got a Salsa Cromoto Grande that's a bit shorter - but I think I like it better with this tall fork up front as I tend to like slacker angles.

    Wouldn't the longer fork affect your handling? At least that's the rule I've always heard, you never want too much - just enough to fit.

    Fork length is dependent on personal choice in handling and what sort of fork the frame is corrected for...

    Finally got this thing put together trying to inject some new life into my old SS. The wheels, tires and fork are new.

    Have tubes in there now but will be going tubeless Saturday night and taking it on it's first real ride Sunday morning.

    Was pretty happy with the 650b Prophet but always felt the front was a bit low with the Lefty (no steerer hight and a short head tube). I also wanted something that could be ridden everyday but a little stronger/stiffer with a bit more travel for some lift days and some of the bigger trails going in around here.





    Really like this bike, fits perfect.... like I am in the bike vs. perched up on top of it and its great to be able to ride it down the more wild trails but still be able to pedal around the normal ones as well.

    2.1 kenda nevagals they came with the bike. Ive never ridden wider tires although I have gone narrower before. These grip and go better than anything Ive had before but there also my first tubeless(gorilla tape and home brew conversion) Are the wider tires really that much better I climb a lot and don't relish more spin weight!

    Fwiw, for the last 15 years or so, all my bikes have been set up with a 2.3 up front and a 2.1 in the rear... I don't notice the extra weight up front while climbing and the additional width is a big plus on the way down.

    Is that a 650b specific build, or a conversion?

    It's a conversion, although there's so much room back there it's as if it were made specifically for 650b.

    Pic with the old wheels but it gives you the idea.

    Plenty of room to move things around with a 2.1 Quasi Moto on the back. (2.3 Neo Moto up front)

    Right now gearing sits at 32x18

    Just waiting for some new Stans rims to hit the market so I can rebuild a front wheel. VERY VERY happy with this bike. Going to be SS for the rest of the year and will throw the gears on again come spring time for some more racing action. Racing SS is tough but a darn good workout!!

    Here's mine. Amaro custom Ti.

    With 700x23c tyres, it is a nice road bike. With 650x42b ones, it is... well, this:

    First shot at the B size. Love the wheel size, but I'm still warming to the frame I built up.



    Soul Cycles Hooligan. Fits a Neo with tons of room to spare. Bit heavy as built though.

    Thought I'd post up my El Bastardo. Ventana frame with custom Cannondale spec 1.5 inch headtube, lefty max carbon fork and full sram XX kit. The best trail blaster I've ever ridden but have also used for a 100km marathon. This bike gets better every time I ride it.



    Cheers
