    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.
