MAP 650b

My wife's MAP 650b.

So far, so swell.

She loves it.

looks great. I think I am going to build my girlfriend a 650b ride, less fancy though, she doesn't ride right now and is just bicycle curious.

super nice!.
did you get fenders for it too?

Whats the max tire size on it?

Thanks everyone. She has it set up just right for her preferences.

Mitch's work is top shelf. Certainly as nice as my Kvales and my McLean for example.

As for fenders, we have a set of Berthouds that I'll install this fall when the weather here gets mucky.

Compass Switchback Hills fit fine without fenders, but will have to see how the wider Berthouds work with this tire.

We tend to ride a lot of gravel and country roads near our cabin on the edge of the BWCA. Can't wait to get there with this bike!

Stronglight polished crank with Sun XCD rings.

44/28s but we are going to play with this a bit.

I just ordered 48/34s at the shop this morning.

Hi Will!!

Let's get together for a ride. I still have to see your Goodrich.

Yes, Carl at Perennial is my dyno/lights guy.

Great local shop btw.

Touring and commuting are their specialties.

They do it very well, I think.

Thanks!

My wife has this sweet tooth for 650b lately.

She also has a warmed up Haanjo EXP Carbon for heavy duty off road jaunts.

That's very funny timing because I was bringing in the Goodrich to get the dynamo work done as well!

I was definitely ogling the MAP for some time; it's really well done.
I do like that shop a lot. They are right on my commute, so I stop often. I'm now a staple at the bike month pastry rides as well.

The Goodrich is ready in its first configuration. I'll get a pic today. I'd like to go for a ride soon!
