    Been riding 650B since 2010.

    Currently riding a 2007 Ted Wojcik "Yo Teddy" (single speed conversion performed by Circle A Cycles in 2012):



    Before this, I had my 1994 Rhygin Ra sporting 650Bs (currently retired):



    And the bike that got it all started, my 2010 Igleheart 953 650B:



    I have a new 80mm White Brothers Loop that's looking for a project. After seeing Seth Rosko's 650B SS at Singlespeed-A-Palooza, I just might have him build me one!

    My LBS is trying to source an X Fusion Velvet for a Voodoo Bokor frame. Aluminum...I know...but price was right. Got all the other bits in line...just waiting on the fork. Keep looking at the bike porn here and was just hungry for another fix. That Yo Teddy is the stuff confessions are made of...and I'm not even Catholic.

    *That Rosko ride is a BMF!!!

    Converted a Gunnar Ruffian in 2007/2008 to 650b and got an OS Blackbuck 650B in 2009, one of only 5 or 6 650b frames OS made.

    I'm riding a Surly 1x1 on 650b's. No pictures available to post, but it's the perfect conversion frame/fork combo.

    my new b-side

    I had one of the orange Soma b-sides but even in the largest size the frame never felt right/big enough. I just got this one in the now larger 21" size. It's money. It's my first frame with sliders, too. It's a nice ride.

    I've since changed the stem to one that's slightly longer and stronger...

    ^NICE!!!

    Mine is a Voodoo Bokor frame. Waiting on an X-Fusion Velvet fork. Shop built wheels (Hope SS hubs, Velocity Blunt SL hoops), Race Face crankset, XT Discs, built more for hauling my lumpy butt around than bling...but I'm super stoked on what "will be".

    Thanks.
    Sounds like you are building a similar unit to mine.
    I didnt post my specs initially but:
    Paul hubs to Velocity Blunt SLs, Echo Trials 18T FW
    Paul Cranks 32T
    new XT brakes & rotors
    Soma B fork


    Havent got to ride it yet (besides around the cul-de-sac) but I'm pretty excited for it.

    Def post yours when it's up and running!

    RL100 w/pop lock. Yes they've worked fine with Stans yellow tape and sealant. Same for my Alex XD's.

    My guy at the LBS called me, my Velvet is supposed to be in at the end of the week. I'm like a twitching crack monkey at this point...can barely stand the wait.

    Anybody try tubeless on the Blunt SLs?

    Last production run on the Ala Carte had swinging drop outs. Set up is super easy. Kinda kicking myself for not picking up the matching rigid fork.
