- 650B+ framesets?
There’s loads out there! I’m riding a Cotic Solaris in B+ flavour. But the last few months seem to have brought us olenty of options. Am very happy with mine. Was an experiment… And have been very impressed with the grip and capability.
Am also loving the look of the new Liteville and the Last Fastforward….Posted 3 years ago
Boost rear end doesn’t mean it’ll fit 3″ tyres, generous tyre clearance is what orange say so might fit some plus combinations but probably not all.
So exactly the same as most normal frames then? They put a boost rear end on it to accommodate 650b+ so I’d assume it will be fine for most 650b+ applications.
I have normal bikes that can’t fit bigger than 2.1 and have had other modern frames that were on the limit at 2.2.Posted 3 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
Boost isn’t a good indicator tbh, there’s 29ers with standard rears that’ll do 3.0 and boost rears that won’t comfortably do 2.8.
Does it have to be frame only? Orbea Loki is looking pretty nifty.
Still think WTB (since they do rims and tyres) should make a printable template of, say, a scraper with all their plus tyres on it. Print it on a3, stick it to a bit of cardboard, fire it into your bike, done. Wouldn’t be the be-all since I’m assuming WTB’s plus size tyres are as randomly sized as all their other tyres but it’d be a huge, er, Plus. Actually, forget about printable- get some made up in plastic and send them out to all their LBSs. It’d be bound to make sales from the curious.
Orange are claiming stiffness but call me skeptical, the swingarm design is inherently flexy and their OE wheels are usually pretty low quality… if they really wanted to make things stiffer they could have done it years ago without changing a part, but it didn’t make for good advertising copy. And I reckon the other bits will probably still be just as bendy.Posted 3 years agosinglespeedstuSubscriber
In true STW fashion I’ll recommend what I’ve got. 😆

The Loki does look good though. I had one on order for quite a while but the delivery date kept getting pushed back so I canceled.Posted 3 years ago
