    Cannondale 1fg 650b compatible?

    Searched thru threads to see if I could find anything on whether 650b wheels would fit couldn't find anything. Anyone here have any idea? By the way we are talking about a 2005 with the headshock ultra.

    Maybe in the rear (doubtful- mine was tight with a 2.2" on), no way on the headshok. Sorry, unless you want the old-school, high in the rear look.

    The HS I've check have interference with the schrader valve under the uni-crown. I check with a 2.3 Neo only.

    so with the new neo 2.1s would it be a fit you think?

    Maybe in the rear, but no 650b tire that I'm aware of will fit in the HeadShock fork.

    Cheers,

    Kirk, What is the measurement from axle to tire tip on the 2.1 and 2.3? and the width of each as well at the tread?
