That's some bad news, was really hoping it would fly on the Dixon:madman: This frame is on my short list, just need to sell the Giant Trance X2 and find a worthy replacement that will fit 650b'sI had a dealer interested in trying it... I loaned him my TL28/Hope combo w/Neo-Moto 2.3" and he said it was a no-go.
I did not see it for myself, so I don't know how bad it was.
I did send Devinci an email but no reply yet..........McG I am semi-smitten with the Split Pivot platform and I like the looks and function of the Dixon more than the Reign..........although I have been really happy with the ride of the Trance X2..........will put it up for sale and see what happens. A local shop in Sedona is listed as a Devinci dealer but they have nothing in stock yet. 2 Wheels Good:thumbsup:At least contact Devinci to put the bug in their ear and URGE them to build a 650B Dixon bike and not be left out of the on slot of new 650B bikes. Everything they do is in house and changes can be made/tried out easily.
If you like Split Pivot the Trek Remedy fits 650B and the Slash would easily fit with plenty of clearance available. ABP = Split Pivot in functionality.
Yeah, that someone would be me. The customer service guy and I went back and forth a bunch of times. From what I remember chain stay clearance wasn't an issue. Seat stay cross brace might be and seat post at bottom out possibly as well but only by a tiny bit if so and a shim would take care of that. No Devinci dealer anywhere near me so i couldn't try.Received an email back from Devinci yesterday. C/S said a rider in the States contacted them and sent them some details etc,,,, and they measured the rear triangle,seat and chainstays and came to the conclusion that 650b might fit,depending on the tire used. Performance in Phoenix is the closest dealer to Flagstaff but I don't get down there often,,,,,especially in the Summer. I wil take my rear wheel with me the next time I go down there.
I thought that might have been you skidad! I won't be in Phoenix anytime soon so I can only hope the Sedona Devinci dealer gets a Dixon in this Summer,,,,,,,,,,,,35 minutes away and 25 degrees cooler than PhoenixYeah, that someone would be me.

I believe they have a carbon Dixon in the works but a true 650B Dixon would be sweet with proper geometry and BB height.
Well finally!! Figured it was only a matter of time considering how so many manufacturers are jumping in. Should be a sweet bike and I look forward to seeing it.....even if I did buy a new Banshee Spitfire V2 frame. Hey, it's still Canadian so it's got good roots.I just heard from Devinci that "a 650b project is in the works, stay tuned".
