i'm really digging the worn-out paint style! how'd you do it? also, is this the 700c version frame or the 650b version retrofitted with 700c wheels?

The 47c fits but only just, the wheel has to be slammed forward to meet the crimping in the chain stay. The handling was ok, the bike didn't roll as fast so I switched back to 700c. Off road the cranks were a little closer to the ground and caught a few times on tree roots
