You know you want it!!

Kirk Pacenti is raffling the 21st Century's FIRST MTB 650B. GO HERE TO GET A RAFFLE TICKET!

The raffle will run through March 10th, 2008. There will be a minimum requirement of 400 tickets sold for the raffle to be valid. If fewer than 400 tickets are sold the raffle will be extended until the minimum is reached.
The price of the raffle ticket will not include the service fee of $4.60. If the minimum of 400 tickets are not sold after a reasonable extension period, the raffle may be ended and winner drawn or participants may receive full refund, less the service fee of $4.60. This decision will be made at the discretion of Pacenti Cycle Design.
NOTE: All proceeds from the raffle will be used to produce more 650B tire designs. So, if you think 650B wheels are a good idea show your support by buying a ticket! This bike is used but in excellent condition. The bike will be professionally tuned, packaged, insured and shipped world wide at no cost to the raffle winner.

This is a nice idea. I'll have to sign up.

On an unrelated note, are there any 650B rims suitable for off-road duty that are for rim-brake use? I've got a 650B road bike with Velocity Synergy rims, but they seem much to narrow for Neo-Motos. What do you think?

The Synergy's could handle general XC use. Their cross section is quite capable of doing so, and many folks out there ARE using these for XC use. Checkout the post in the archive "Username Steelbike" He converted his Gunnar SS to 650B using the Synergy rims. Also, the Synergy can handle loaded touring, and thats VERY rough on, think about it.
