    That's funny seeing Moots jump into the 650B market because 18 months ago I called them seeking a 650B Ti hard tail. They said they wouldn't do one even if it was a full custom..............I guess they caved due to market pressure.

    Yeah I got the same response - they were so NOT into 650b it was a little bit of a turnoff. Sent me right over to Jim Kish.

    I was just going to pull this quote from the Rogue ad, but I see you already did. I vaguely remember another MTBR post where a member contacted moots wanting a 650b custom and they said it too much effort to retool and they weren't capable of doing it...maybe it was you? I dunno, but I too call BS

    Are they not allowed to change there mind if the market/trends start to change? Why does it make them releasing one now a joke or bs?

    To me, better late than never I suppose (not that I am in the market for a 650b).

    Thats insane. Moots HAS to get into the 650b market. They seriously need to make the new Divide a 650b. They probably have a majority of their Divide customers buying the MX Divide (29er) but I'd bet if they spec'd out the bike to fit 650b they would have more buying that. 26er I cant say but they seriously have to step into the 650b world more. Eriksen has an incredible F/S bike that is 650b campatible. It doesnt make sense that Moots wouldnt do this.

    I think it's a Moot point since they have gone 650B.
