    A 650B wheel fits in the back?? Can we see some pics of the clearance at the chainstays/seatstays? Really surprised this frame would work as a conversion.

    @Pat, they fit on the RSL only, the tire can touch the seat tube on the MSL at full compression.

    What is the difference between the RSL and MSL? Nothing is jumping out at me from their website...

    Any idea about the new aluminum Element? Thanks!

    The RSL has 98mm of travel and the MSL has 120mm. The RSL probably has a lower BB to boot which also makes it a betta conversion imo.

    This has been posted before on this thread but since I own it now and not Steve I'll post the same pic. LOL I'll try and take some fresh ones on the trail but I'd rather spend my time tomorrow on the trail riding instead of snapping photos.

    I like that Xeon! Very stealth looking frame-wise!

    On One 456 Carbon

    I've been a 650b convert for about a month. Love it. My full-sus 26'r is collecting dust.

    They are burly. The 456 is an overbuilt frame...in carbon and steel.

    I love the ride. It is fast and fun. I don't know how to technically describe it, but it is more fun than my Yet AS-R. Might just be my Yet's setup, but I can't complain. I'm not missing the rear travel at all.

    That said, when I was running 26 in. wheels on the 456 I didn't enjoy it as much. The 650b's made the rear more compliant and made the front roll over obstacles easier. Of course I'm preaching to the choir here.

    Yeah just ment they seem to be setup to devour trail specially with the 650's. Are those the 2.3's? I would think your AS-r would feel like a different ride after getting some time on the 456! Poor thing getting dusty and evrrything.

    I have a couple xc type ht's with 650's and am in process of building up a 650 El Bastardo so hopefully being wheel specific it will workout and get equal riding time.

    Your Carbon 456 looks nice! How much travel are you running up front? 130mm?

    Yep, 2.3 neo-motos. And it does eat up the trail. Built it up to be a semi-All Mountain hardtail. No real weight weenie parts to speak of so it weighs 25 lbs 2 oz. IMHO it accelerates and climbs better than the Yeti. I am also able to get up to a faster speed quicker. I contribute it to the wheels.

    Thanks man. I appreciate it.

    The X-fusion Enix is set at 100 mm right now. It can go to 120 mm, but I don't feel like going through all the mess to change it. 100 mm is fine for the trails in Florida.

    Nice ride. I rode a Velvet with 100mm for a while before going 130mm and if you do not need the extra 30mm for descents, the 456C is tamer with 100mm, especially in climbs. I love the Neos 2.3 but for the dry season, I am going to try the RRs, too.
