But, now that the obscure obsolete size 650b is a thing again, every once in a while I consider getting that old three speed out of storage and putting new rubber on it.
we were lent a junior road bike many years ago, for my short wife to try out, and at the time, 650b was extremely rare. The big bike store I'd gone to for years had one model of tire, road tire, for it, but in the end, the bike just didnt fit her that well and I was glad that we eventually found a XS road frame that fit her well with 700s, so it was nice to be able to use the same tubes as spares on rides together. One less thing to remember.
