Want to own a piece of modern mountain bike history? Here's your chance to win the 21st centuries first 650B mountain bike, spec'd out with one-of-a-kind components custom-made for this bike, which was first debuted at the North American Handbuilt Bicycle Show in in March 2007.
Kirk Pacenti, a frame and component designer best known for www.bikelugs.com, realized that the almost century-old 650B wheel was the ideal size for contemporary mountain bike designs, and it seems many other designers agree with him. In fact the 2007 Interbike show in Las Vegas included no less than ten 650B mountain bikes on display, including nearly 20 booths displaying some 650B-specific content or products. Several of these companies already have 650B mountain bikes planned for 2008 season.
The bike shown here is the first ever Pacenti 650B mountain bike, and Kirk's personal rig. Its built up with several one-of- a-kind components and concepts that represent a pivotal moment in mountain bike history. This bike was also recently tested in Dirt Rag Magazine issue #131.
The winner of the raffle will also receive an autographed copy of the magazine to go along with the bike. Be one the first to experience the revolutionary ride characteristics of 650B in the dirt aboard this very unique machine.
