    Haro Shift R5?

    I've searched the forum but couldn't find any info...

    Has any body tried Haro Shift w/ 650B tires?
    It seems like a perfect Single Pivot bike for 650B...

    It will probably work. Single pivots are the easiest FS bikes to convert to 650B. A simple quick way to get an idea is if you can stick your index and middle finger between the tire and chainstay yoke it will work. Just make sure there is no seatstay bridge or you will need to check clearance for that. Last but not least the tire has to not hit the seat tube at full shock compression. You can get around this if it hits by shimming the shock so that it does not use the full stroke.
    I ride a 650Bed Superlight and love it. Good Luck
