Looking for a 650b backroads/gravel bike before the snow flies?

I goofed on the BB height due to an equipment malfunction and Bastian’s unusual front wheel doesn’t play nice with the front Paragon dropouts, so while Bastian enjoyed the bike for the season – it’s time to build him a new one. Offered for $700, or $900 with matching fork (not pictured). Complete parts kit available as well at my usual smoking prices if you want a full build.

Here’s the¬†geometry:


The frame will fit up to a 50c x 650b rear tire, or a 35x700c. It would ideally be run with something like a 40×650 like the Babyshoe Pass, though.

The frame uses a 142×12 rear hub, so easy to swap wheels with your existing 27.5/650b mountain bike, if you want to.

Full warranty available to any purchaser under 175 pounds. If you’re a big dude, this probably isn’t the bike for you.
