    26'' wheel on a 27.5'' fork?
    Any reason why I can't or shouldn't go back and forth between 26 and 27.5 on a 650 b specific fork? I suppose a 26 might steepen the angles a bit, but assuming that wasn't a problem.

    If you're going to put 26" on the rear too, there shouldn't be any change in angle really.

    It may slacken the HTA a bit if the fork has a taller A2C than the same 26" fork (assuming you are running 26" on both sides). Should give you a nice tall arch to run meaty 26" too.

    You'll need to take into account the axle to crown measurement and see if it suits your frames geometry.

    does anyone know the fork offset for the Fox 650b forks vs, 26er forks?
