    Clyde wants to stage race, new bike? 650b?

    So I am looking to purchase a new bike as I want to enter a stage race next year. Thought it would give me a good goal to get in better shape and drop some pounds.

    So, I need to get me a full suspension, but I am irritated with the lack of 650b parts. I just had some new 26in wheels built about six months ago so it makes the decision harder.

    So, are any clydes riding 650b? Any clydes over 250lbs? How are the wheels holding up?

    Any other thoughts would be appreciated.

    Build up a set of wheels with these:

    They should be nigh on bullit proof, there are a number of bikes that should check all the boxes as well.
