    Pivot Mach 5 compatible with 650b?

    I'm curious. Has anyone tried to fit 650b wheels on a pivot mach 5?

    Possibly the smaller 650b tires. My well worn 2.3 Neo-moto I mounted had no more than a business card or two thickness in clearance, but did spin. I did not test bottom out tire to seat tube clearance.

    On big 650b conversion problem is the Mach 5 has a very high BB height, with 26 inch tires it's near 13.75 before sag. With 650b the BB would be near 14.25 inch high.
