Here's where my 650b conversion is up to. Still tweaking gears and graphics...

That's lovely. I wondered how easy a 650b conversion would be ... were the canti bosses in the right place, still?

The only v-brake I could find that didn't require butchery to the original bosses were the Velo Orange ones - there's a bit more on the bike's own thread here: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=365624&hilit=650b&start=10

I mentioned in my post that I had bought my then girlfriend a tourer from Overburys. Technically, it was branded "Andy Powell". She hasn't used it a lot over the intervening 35 years, but her husband recently had it restored to be as close as the original as he could get it. Nothing particularly special at this point - just your bog-standard custom handmade 531 700c tourer, but ... they were and are nice bikes, eh?

I beg to differ. Wonderful frames that make wonderful bikes.

I guess my attempt at subtle sarcasm was too subtle :) Yes, lovely bike.
