    Nice surprise. '11 Revelation World Cup clears the 2.3 NeoMoto

    What a pleasant surprise. My 2011 RockShox Revelation World Cup has plenty of clearance for my 650b Crest and 2.3 Neo Moto! My trails are 99% non-muddy and clearance looks to be about 3 or 4mm to the naked eye.

    The fork is going on a Pivot Mach 5.7 Carbon which I had every intent of keeping 26/26, but this newfound surprise has me wondering if I should try the 650b wheel and 150mm fork. Maybe the climbing won't suffer/wander/understeer.

    Could save me some money from buying a new front wheel and just ordering a rear 12x142.

    May try a 2012 Racing Ralph 2.25 650b today for clearance.

    addendum: tons of room!

    Funny, this is the second mixed report on 2010-and-later Revelation tire clearance. I put a Racing Ralph on mine and it was BARELY rideable IF you're a risk taker, with frequent tire buzz on the arch in clean & dry conditions.... so I assumed the 2.3 NeoMoto was a no-go. Is it really that much smaller than a RR? Someone posted pictures in another thread of 2.3 Neo with adequate clearance so I'm not doubting .... just surprised.
