    650bMX ?

    Anyone know offhand if there is a production 27.5" bmx cruiser on the market ? I know SE has their 29" Big Ripper. I've ridden one but it felt like a tank. I've ridden some 26" BMX cruisers (Mongoose KOS Cruiser/SE OM Flyer) but would like to try a 650bMX.

    Does anyone know offhand if it's possible to get a 27.5" wheel in the rear triangle of most modern 26" cruisers (Volume, SE, Firemans, GT, etc) ? I've got a 24" wheel bmx cruiser that I have converted to 26" rear/27.5" front wheels. It rides well but it'd be fun to
    have a purpose built bmx cruiser with dual 27.5" wheels, or a frame that converts well.

    Here's a couple pics of my 24 to 26/27.5 conversion. Check out the Redline Flight cranks. I drilled the spider to a 74mm bcd. The drivetrain is 28x11-40, eight speed. What I have in mind for an alternative to this bike is a more of a grocery getter, but something that still handles well and has a few speeds.
