>My Bates was originally speced for 26" wheels (is Brit 26" the same as today's?)and either Resilion cantis or real long reach Siebers. I don't have brakes with that kind of reach so am contemplating 650B's, which would make it possible to use either my Coureurs, Universals, or Mafacs. My Sturmey TF is a 40 holer. Anyone out there have a 40 hole 650B? I'd gladly take this oddball off your hands real cheap. Otherwise, it's 700c.

There are many variations on the nominal 26" theme.
As you can see tires are available
Aluminum 40 hole rims for the 26 x 1 3/8"
The 650b seems to be having a revival with a variety of tires available
from Rivendell, your typical French touring bike suppliers and
Confusing isn't it?
