anyone making 650b mountain bike?
Sorry if you've been here before, but is anyone making an affordable 650b mountain bike these days? Last year I saw a pic of the Soma Bside, but it doesn't seem to be in production.
I'm still not sold on the 650b. I've heard of so many issues with rolling beads. It's tough to say if yours will be "the one" that works. Even heard of Stans rims rolling beads.
I'd much rather run a stout 26" wheel with a 2.3-2.5" tire than a 650b with a 2.2. Though I'm not a racerboy weenie. I'm getting old, phat, and slow. Dreading the climbs and loving the descents.
I'm sold on it; I'm just waiting for the 2.5 tire and the DH-able rim. Then I'm going to lace that baby up to the front and have me a 27.5/26er.

That's pretty cheap for Ti
