    Rock Shox 650b Revelation & wide tires

    Can someone confirm that the widest 650b trail tires (I have in mind something like 2.35 Hans Dampf) fit the 650b Revelation 150 fork?

    I'm sure this has been discussed somewhere but I've searched and can't find anything.

    Guys, let me pls bump this one - anyone ever tried 650b rvl with 650b big tires?

    I am also interested in Hans Dampf 2.35 or nobby nic 2.35

    I've been running now 650b rvl with 26" 2.4 nobby nic, just considering switch to proper 650b wheel instead, ztr flow ex probably.

    Should be no problem running a 2.35 Nobby's or Hans. The Norco Sight Killer B 1 and 2 use the Rev 650 fork and come stock with 2.35 Nobby's.

    I had 2.35 HD's with a 650b RS Revolution and there was plenty of clearance.

    I have a 2.35 HD on my 2013 650b revelation RCt3 dual position fork right now. There is plenty of clearance for a larger tire. After all, it is a dedicated 650b fork. They would have no business designing a 650b 150mm travel fork that couldn't handle at least a 2.4" tire.

    I have a 2.35 Nobby Nic on my Revelation. There's probably a half inch clearance on either side and a bit more on the top.
