650b chapman cycles updated with final pics

Getting a new chapman, Brian's working on it now and some parts are starting to roll in.

I love white industries hubs , the t11 is really handsome in polished, this one is spaced 135mm

Schmidt dynamos are great and the special wide flange model peter white distributes builds a much stronger wheel than it's narrow brethren.

Both are 36 hole and i'll be lacing them to some pacenti pl23 rims tomorrow when I get the spokes in, wheelsmith 14/15 with sapim 2.3/2.0 on the rear drive side



Color is going to be FJ rustic green

Those Schmidt/Peter white hubs... Like jewelry. Reek of quality. Have built up a couple of those and also have a narrow. I did have one short out or something. After a very minor crash (sliding out at low speed) it got really rough and the light did not work. But since it's peter white I had the replacement hub in a few days. He even offered to build the wheel free (which may have taken a little longer)

Much Look forward to seeing the bike. I visited Brian's shop. having him design and build 650B would be the next bike for me. Of course, I would have him do the racks, etc. he's a real constructeur.

I'll be following this one for sure.
Same wheel combo as my Tomii. I have Velocity wheels though.
Chapman and Tomii are friends

really nice; looking forward to seeing this one get built up. i love utilitarian bikes, ones that get ridden rather than displayed. agree on the WI hubs, elegant - yet simple engineering and easy maintenance. probably the best road hubs you can buy right now, all things considered.

keep us posted.

The pacenti PL23 rims remind me of the first cross max ceramic rims.

Agreed.

I could see contacting Brian about a frameset when our boys get out of college.

Took a long time to pick the color, my other chapmans are green so I thought why not go green again , fenders will be painted as well. Mostly a mavic build.

Brian's choice on tubes, standard oversize assortment of columbus stuff, tapered down tube for a little extra stiffness . 1" headtube, KVA polished stainless chain stays, columbus rando blades, reynolds seat stays that taper down to a minuscule 10 millimeters, routens style fork crown, fillet brazed, half lugged bb shell with chain stay sockets, paragon stainless dropouts, polished stainless reinforcement rings on headtube

Sweet mix. Going to be a nice one.
