A while back, I was fortunate enough to get a chance to test a prototype of the Budnitz MTN 650b titanium mountain bike. If you read the review, you’ll know that I was particularly excited about responsiveness of the frame and the surprising agility the 650b wheels provided. As a long-time 26” curmudgeon, I was quickly taken back by how much a difference the extra 1.5” in wheel circumference added. I did indeed, call the ride quality “magic”.
Since the first incarnation of a Budnitz mountain bike, they’ve swapped a few things out for their latest build including a 14-speed Rohloff hub and a White Brothers LOOP suspension fork. Oh yeah, and the crispy matte black paint? Looks pretty slick. See this beautiful bicycle in greater detail below. Be sure to read up more on the Budnitz MTN on their site.
