    Nukeproof mega 650b

    Has anyone tried this yet ?

    Considering giving 650 flow rims ago

    Running fox 36's so the front no problem and there is about 20mm or 3/4 inch of clearance
    top and bottom clear of the frame
    With a 26 flow rim with 2.35 Hanz dampf, would really like to stick to using this tyre set up
    But in a 650 .........

    yes, I did. But the Marzocchi 55CR didnīt take the 650b wheel.

    Cheers for the response fella
    The back does look a smidge tight, perhaps a 2.25 nobby nic ?

    In my opinion, it doesnīt make any sence...... like the SC Nomad here somewhere...

    A Nomad with 650b, cross country tires like Racing Ralph and Rocket Ron plus a 180mm fork, strange combination.
    btw the bb height of the standard nomad is very high (I had one) and with the 650b wheels.......it doesnīt make it better I guess

    The bb height of the mega could be still ok, but to use a smaller rear tire? That isnīt the general idea
