    650b Racer-X.... Please oh please...

    Make this happen Shiggy! Love the proto Exo-Grid... but if at all possible consider an Exo Racer-X 650-B and I would forget all about that Siren Song I've been lusting over!

    Couple other things... 1.5" Headtube option for a Lefty (It is easy to fit 650b with those) and a PF30 BB.... THAT would rock!

    No S bend stays? I love the thin S bend says on my Exo 29er.

    Ben is a 650B fan. I expect a RX650 in the future, in AL.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Custom option for Exo-Grid and I'm in! Seriously! I'm was thinking Siren Song 650b in Ti, but I'd take an RX650 over that. If not Exo, please, oh please, at least Ti!

    Thanks Ben and Shiggy for thinking outside of the box and into the future!

    ...and if you had any doubt, this is from the 650b board....

    They are not S bend because they are exogrid seat stays as well and they can not be bent.

    I see that now. Wow! I bet that frame is a featherweight?

    I would buy a 650B RX. I would have to sell two 29ers to afford it but I think that would be a perfect bike for me.

    I was never a fan of the dropouts bonded to the carbon seatstays. My dropouts came loose and started to crack the carbon. I saw this before anything failed but still - I would prefer straight aluminum over that type of setup. Won't be a deal breaker either way though. Bring on the 650B RX100!
