    Looks like Stan's is doing 650b rims now.

    Sure would be freakin peachy if a 650b Crow was soon to follow!

    is the Crow really that good of a tire? it's so low profile. i can't imagine attempting to ride one anywhere other than something like a short-track course.

    It's low profile, but remember it's running 19-22 PSI for most folks. Plenty of surface area and working edges at that pressure...

    Mickey - thinking of doing a 650b Spooky perhaps?

    Not exactly, I just made sure the Darksides and Junebugs fit 650b's in case lighter race-worthy wheels and tires became available.

    The idea is;
    26" wheels and a suspension fork or 650b's and a rigid fork.

    Gotcha.

    That makes sense.

    Dear Mickey;

    If I choose to run a Super Monster on my Junebug, will it void the warranty?

    Love,

    Joe

    No, Joe, all of our bikes are designed to take at least 18" of front suspension travel.
