"Hi Cracked Headtube, and other 650bers! Just letting you know that Pacenti's tyres are now available in Australia through http://www.definitivecycles.com.au/ .
We are also the aussie Dealer for White industries and On One. We are just down the road from the Velocity factory and will be working with them and White Industries to provide Aussies with 650b wheelsets with Kirks tyres.
Cheers, Stu "
Stu, Thanks for the update! Our AU and Kiwi readers will really appreciate this info!
Mean while, elsewhere:
"You aren’t going to believe this, but we got 1st place in the open class! I haven’t really had time to train for this, for lots of reasons and was only hoping for a top 10-20 finish and on the 2nd lap I was really feeling it on the climbs, by no means am I in top shape right now. In terms of the bike, I have one word to say "awesome"! I am definitely sold on the 650B, and the 100mm came in handy, the descents were steep and rocky and the extra 20mm really made a difference. "

Rick is demoing a 650B MTB, and is now in the market for his own!
