In this installment of The Path Less Pedaled, Russ starts a project he’s been meaning to do for a long time—convert a 700c Salsa Vaya to a 650b. There are plenty of new bikes on the market that are meant to run a variety of different tire sizes, but what happens if you try to convert a bike that’s not explicitly designed for swapping between sizes?
Watch the video to learn the advantages of 650b vs 700c sizing, and to see if his conversion works!
