    650b on 2000 kona explosif

    thinking of trying a 650b wheel on the front of my wife's 2000 kona explosif scandium
    hardtail (14"/small) . the fork is a rock shox sid sl dual air (80mm).
    anyone know if a 650b would work on this fork/bike?

    The bike will be fine. Just check the 650b compatible fork forum for the fork. I suspect not?

    I'm pretty sure SIDs will not work. As a general rule if there is more than 1/2" of clearance available with a 26" tire then you may be able to fit a similarly profiled 650b tire (2.1 vs 2.1, etc).
