Anyone know of any except A. Dugast? Is Tufo and Schwalbe coming with it or just waiting?

I´ve just tried to ask Tufo - they don´t plan production in foreseeable future. Pity.

I asked Tufo and they told me perhaps in a future will custom 650b tubular, but not inmediatly.

I'm guessing here but I think they'll all be waiting to see how 650b progresses in the market. It's come along too soon, in Europe certainly, after the trend for 29'ers. I think most have gone with the trend on 29'ers and with the economy the way it is, there isn't much investment money to throw around so many aftermarket manufacturers will be hesitant with 650b.

Why would you want tubular tires in a mountain bike?

Have you tried tubular off road? Ride with 1,5bar and don't have to worry about your expensive rimwalls or the tire going off. Awesome with tubular on mtb.

Like tubulars more on mtb than on a roadbike.

But will continue using 26" for next year too, AX-Lightnessrims and probably FMB tires.

I have AX Lightness SRT CC with Tufo tubulars on my Flash, and if I change the wheels in the future, I will mount the same wheelset in 650b. But I,m in love with the AX rims, they are the best.
