    Singular Hummingbird all B'd up.

    Some of you may know that I'm selling the Singular brand here in the US now. I pulled in a few Hummingbirds as a test to see if they'll sell. Ideally, they're set up as a 69er or 26 fr/rr with a 100mm fork. But since I don't like 69ers, and 26" is old news, I thought I'd set one up for my wife as a 650B.

    While clearance on this model is...uh...*tight*....it works. With the 2.0 only. I'm sending Sam some 650B parts soon so he can set up his own B bike and try the platform out. Its my hope that the H-bird gains more room here in the future to become a truely versatile machine.

    While its certainly no mud bike, it still rides nice. My wife hasn't got a ton of time on it yet, but she seems to liek it thus far. I'll probably find a Fox fork for it some time soon as she really likes the smoother ride.

    Looks like only minor tweeking to the rear would be needed. Probably not too hard to do for another run of Hummingbirds in the future methinks.

    What's that rear hub you are running Marty?

    Hmm... I love the Hummingbird's look, but that rear would need an overhaul since the Quasi is fairly narrow. Oh well, 26" in the back works really well too.

    yeah, a 26" would work very well in the rear, and we may go that direction yet. We just have to see how well this works out.

    Looks good - headbadges on the way Marty :-) Loking forward to trying them myself.

    As for geometry changes, on paper it would seem that going 650 both ends will make it very quick steering, I would have thought it would work better with a 120 or so fork. However it's all in the riding so I'll try both and report!
    Yes - I do own Singular Cycles
