Groovy 650b for sale...

Well, one of the issues of having a growing family is that the kid's quickly out grow their bikes and need new ones.

I made this frame for Kalten to race on this lasted about 5 months and it is too small for him now, so if somebody can use it, I'd like to see it in the dirt under a smiling face.

The frame is built of a mix of Dedda, Columbus, and a double butted downtube from Fairing Industrial and has a fresh powder coat of neon green ... no fashion weenies allowed ;) I made it with modular sliding dropouts, so that it can be run as a single speed or geary 1x9 with full run cable housing and ties. It is pretty light...don't ask for an exact weight cause I don't have one.

The frame was built in a midnight session and has one minor cosmetic oops. When making the sliding drops for frame, I rotated one of the hoods around .25" farther than the other, so if you know where to look, they are not symmetrical. Does not affect the strength/alignment/ride, just thought you should know.

Keep growing and paint the next one red please. What a steal, that should go quick. I love the 650B wheel size.
