Interbike '08 : OS Blackbuck

Mark Slate from WTB and was on hand at the Outdoor demo yesterday and confirmed many things.  Tires and rims will be a seperate post but the thing I want to touch on is the new OS Bikes Blackbuck 650b frames!

The purpose behind designing a 650b frame is when Mark was trying to design a smaller 29er frame for OS Bikes he kept running into many issues.  Enter in 650b.   The bike will hold all the same features and price of the 29er sister but in a smaller wheel size.

Today when I was at my first appointment of the day with WTB there was a package that came in from Mark.  The first proto of the 650b frame for Mark to test out!
