    I have a 26er MTB frame, but I want to use 27.5er wheels

    Can I use a 27.5er(650B) wheels on my 26er frame?

    Not to sound rude, but they make 650b frames/bikes for a reason.

    I put 29er wheels on an Ibex 350 and it fit with 40c tires. It was just to see if I wanted to buy a real 29er frame with proper geo.

    I did buy a dedicated 29er ht frame after my little test.

    Mount a tire and see..

    With a skinny small tire maybe but it would be a huge waste.

    yes, a huge waste. I think I have to buy another 27.5 frame, or one pair of 26er wheels from this store

    Many conversions have been made, the only way to know for sure is to throw a wheel in there. Don't let Tigris discourage you.

    There are many possible frames that do fit, and if it fits... ride it.
