    2011 Rockhopper 650b Compatible

    Instead of selling my 2011 26" rockhopper and picking up a 29 HT, I'm considering doing a 27.5 conversion.

    A few questions, some of which I know have been posted previously but it would be great if someone has specifically done this to my exact bike and fork.

    Frame is 2011 specialized rockhopper in a 15.5 size
    Fork is a 2011 Fseries FIT RLC setup at 100mm travel

    Considering stans arch ex or flow ex 650b and would still like to run a large volume tire... e.g. 2.35 Hans Damph front and maybe smaller sized nobby nic rear. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    Additionally, does any know if the 2011 Fox Fseries FIT RLC (100 mm) will fit a stans 650 wheel with a large volume brand tire (Swhalbe, Bontrager XR4 if available, Ardent, etc.)

    It will probably not answer your questions, but I have 15.5" Rockhopper SL 2011 equipped with Ritchey PRO MTB Carbon fork (with the stack height of 445 mm which is the equivalent of the 100 mm travel of suspension forks). I have installed on the front the wheel from 29-ner with 2.15" tires without any problems.

    I assume that 27.5" should fit as well.

    Regards,
    Adam

    PS. I am also looking into additional set of wheels for my Rockhopper in the size of 27.5, but will wait with that till spring.
