Little Birds....

Little birds have notified me of 2 650B hardtails in the works. I have a contact at the manufacturer., but he has yet to confirm, or even reply to my emails... I think the silence speaks volumes. The rumor is 2 hardtails, but we have yet to see the Fuji that was getting prototyped, so if we get one, I'll be stoked.
I can tell you that this company has been making mountain bikes for years, and is in MANY IBDs and have a few shipping warehouses throughout North America. Another hint would be to tel that some of their current hard tails can already fit the 650B knobbies on the market.
I'll keep you updated to any news that may break!

MMcG,

Me thinks he wont tell even if you guess it.

Besides, these things don't exist until they hit the shop floor.

Voodoo?

Surly?

Negative, everyone. It is a larger brand that offers a full line of adult bikes, not just frames.

What the heck, I'll guess Diamondback.

Then again, there's Marin. Yeah, going with Marin.

Which Marin hardtails currently accept 650B wheels? I'm unaware of any.

I guess Specialized...bwha! Can't really believe it, though. They must be making their own fork, too.
