    Questions about 69ers

    First, how does the ride of a 69er compare to a 29er? I have a 2002 Turner O2 bike with a Fox Float 100 fork. Does anyone know if I could put a 29" wheel in front? It looks like it would fit. Would this conversion make sense?

    YOu would need a new wheel and a new fork.

    But..........
    you could keep that fork and install a 650b front wheel in front (less expensive option) and still get a larger wheel diamter up front. It would also feel more "balanced" IMO than a 69er set up with your Turner.

    Just my two cents.
