    What distributors carry 650b stuiff?

    Had some time at the end of the day here at the shop. I thought I'd check and see what QBP, J&B, and SBS had for 650b stuff. They have bupkis, nada, niet, not-a thing. Well I found 2 650b rims in the QPB catalogue.

    Who carries this stuff? And, how is a shop supposed to get a hold of it?

    QBP carries Pacenti Tires. Velocity Rims, XFusion forks, Panaracer tires, had Schwalbe's tire too.
    Hawley has Soma Bside frames, WTB rims, had pacenti and IRD tires, American Classic wheels
    BTI once carried American Classic wheels too, Alex rims, IRD tires, Soma Frames, Sun Rims
    J&B only carries the Velocity Twin Hollow and Synergy Rims.

    QBP and Hawley are picking up Vee Rubber who will be producing tires.

    Velocity is very easy to work with directly.
    As of right now I think the Pacenti Rims are only available direct, at bikelugs.com

    No one is making 650B stems and handlebars yet, I hope someone does soon.

    It's clear that your "shop" is on the cutting edge run by a ninja of bicycle shop management.
    Old enough to know better. And old enough not to care. Best age to be.

    They carry all those brands, but I didn't find any in 650b, just 26 and 29. And a search on the website only showed 2 different rims total from QBP. BTI, I have got to get my boss in with those folks. They carry Alex, but a quick check showed the didn't have any in stock.

    Thank you for the help!

    Not sure how pricing compares but Merrysales only sells to shops and handles Soma frames, Pacenti products and some other components under Bike Lug. They are West Coast based.

    Bump. Does QBP still carry 650b stuff? I cannot find a single online store with Pacenti 650b tires in stock and I am being told a major distributor has discontinued 650b MTB gear recently.

    How is the Panaracer Fire XC Pro btw? It seems to be one of the few alternatives to RaRas and Nevegals that you can still get online and with some nice discounts, too.

    QBP still carries some 650b stuff. just looked for tires/rims.
    rims: velocity p35 and synergy
    wheels:2 options from their handspund department
    tires: Racing Ralph, Nevegal

    seems that they have reduced stock, or possibly are just swapping product. Notably less than this time last year. Their online catalog ebbs and flows depending on what they currently have in house, or is on immediate backorder.
