    650b Lobster

    Yes, I know the pics are crappie. Still playing around with tweaking the fit. Just back from a short little ride through the city park. I like how these wheels just barrel through - which is good b/c it's been a long time since I pedaled a rigid fork.

    I like the color combo. More wider/complete bike pics. Is this 650b purpose built or a conversion from an existing frame?

    I should get some more pics this weekend as I'm planning on doing an epic. 650b purpose built. The paint has a surprising amount of depth which I didn't think you could get with a powder.

    Looking good. I'm curious about the geometry numbers, including BB drop.

    BB height is about 11.5 inches. The fork is designed for a 100mm suspension fork. About a year ago I tested out a set of 650b wheels by cramming them into my 26" wheel frame and after one ride I saw the light. Kinda hard to see in the pics, but the tubing is Tange Prestige Ultimate with that external ribbing. The handling is just spot on.
