    Number 5 is a 650B

    I just picked up frame number 5 from the powder coater and I'm pretty happy with the way it came out. This is the first frame I felt like I didn't need to think about what I was doing, just flow with the process. Of course that means I must be lined up for some major mistake in the near future but hopefully not.

    Number 5 is a 650B-1005254_10151681367572417_1076173166_n.jpgNumber 5 is a 650B-1044740_10151681367602417_194285592_n.jpgNumber 5 is a 650B-1044961_10151681367877417_2142525798_n.jpgNumber 5 is a 650B-1044985_10151681367612417_108712581_n.jpg

    I don't have all the numbers on me right now seeing as I'm at work, but the basics are 69.5 degree headtube, 74 degree seattube, 16.75" chainstay, as short a front center as I could get without toe overlap and a 12.5" BB height. This one is for a friend who has pretty short torso/arms so I tried to keep the cockpit small. I'll build it up soon and hopefully it will fit well.

    Thanks Walt and Goldend Boy for the complements. Tubing is a smattering of what I had around at the time. 35m 9/6/9 downtube, 31.6 8/5/8 toptube, 31.6 6/9 seattube with a sleeve machined to fit and brazed in for a 27.2 post, 46.6mm true temper Headtube, stays are nova S bend (I think) and Nova dropouts.

    Thanks. I like the look of the fatter tubes. Mine has a 28.6 TT and 31.8 DT. I plan to bump those numbers up to what you used for my next frame. It will be interesting to see how the ride quality changes.

    Again, nice clean build!

    The fork will be an X-Fusion 100mm travel. Between the big tubes, tapered steerer and 15mm front axle it should go where it is pointed.
