Still need to install fenders and a front rack.
Looks like a nice ride!
What front rack are you going to use?

the rear derailleur is pretty interesting, might have to get one of them
I have a question though.
What is the advantage of a 650b bike over 700c bike? I ride 58-59 size frames and I was thinking of modifying/replacing my long distance bike all together, but a 650b bike never entered my thoughts.
Another question about this built. How do 10 speed(or 11) Campy shifters work with a Shimano 9-speed cassette?

Campy 10s shifters can be paired with 8s Shimano w/o any adapters.
Campy 11s shifters can be paired with 9s Shimano w/o any adapters.
On my bike I use the da Vinci-modified SRAM rear derailleur for compatibility between 10s Campy shifters and 9s Shimano.
Is the size of the tire (32 and above) and cushy ride the only advantages to use a 650b tire over 700c bike?
P.S. That bike looks sharp. Bet it's a blast on long gravel rides!
A 650B wheel also seems to "spin up" quicker than a 700C wheel, in my limited experience.
Hi I am considering one of these frames. I would like to ask what size frame you have and your height/inseam
I usually ride a 60cm seat tube and 57-59 cm top tube with a 110mm stem
Thanks in advance
That helps a great deal, thank you
