Well like it or not it's here to stay. I love mine but what do you do with all those gears?

In 5 yrs 650b will completely take over. Bike manufacturers are going to need to swing momentum to the 650b after the market is well established in 29er (which it already is) mode just to keep sales going.
Remember you heard it here first...I also predicted the return of lime green as a popular color. :lol:

You can probably get a 650B Cannondale Flash in lime green next year.

I am also a 650b fan! I really can't stand how all these 29ers look like.

My Stumpy FSR 29er is great, i don't think I would ever go back to a 26er.

I was on the I hate 29'r bandwagon a while back. My buddy kept saying how much he liked his. So we swapped bikes for about 1 miles of a cool rolling single track. Swapped bikes back and we started talking about building me one (he is a very small local builder) Now all I ride is my 29, I had plans to take my 26 out for comparison but I just really dont want to I love my 29 so much! I will agree some of these 29 bikes do just look very very odd.

Hate to break it to you but 29ers are definitely here to say and they're going to crush your 26" wheels.

I've been converting my buddies...

goofy looking or not, they are here to stay, and are eventually going to faze out the 26" wheels except on kids bikes...

Why all the weight? You better get that 650b below 20 lbs.

I have my first 29er on the way. Hopefully next week.
