    Anyone tried/successfully converted Turner Flux 4" Travel 26" to 27.5?

    Bike is several years old, 07-08ish but is like new. I parked it when I got into 29ers, but have been thinking of trying to convert it as there isn't much of a market for a 26" FS. It has a FLoat RL 100 in the front so I figured I would need to get a 120 Frotn Fork and some 27.5 wheels and go for it. I guess the front should work regardless but was hoping for front and rear.

    Anyone played around with an older Flux?

    Thanks!

    Tried it on a 6 pack but it didn't work, not even close.

    Bummer, hoping to find some wheels to play with. Worst case scenario I guess my daughter will get a sweet bike!

    I like burley tires though so this may be unrealistic to go this route-

    I converted a 08 5 spot. It worked but nothing like a dedicated 650b frame. I traded it in, worth $600, towards a burner frame.
