    Depends mostly on your bike.

    Not at all.

    Just remember that the "B" will be 12mm tall and the widest point 12mm further out than the equivalent 26" tire.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Why would you want to run a small volume tire? Even if it works, I'd rather have 26" rims with a big tire than 650b rims with a small tire.

    The height of a 2.6 or 2.7 is closer to the Neo-Moto 650B tire.

    I just never want to buy another bike. My current 26er is all I need. I'm just asking for future reference that's all. Ill probably break the frame before the selection of 26 tires ever runs out but I was just curious for future reference

    Be a little helpful if you elaborated a little more on your bike i.e. ht/fs? what clearance you have now with the 2.4, and riding terrain i.e. xc/am etc. You may be able to fit a 2.1 like a Quasi/Neo or Maxxis CrossMark but those tires may not match up well your trail conditions.
    Wait,who did he tell you that?....
