    Running 26 in rear with 3/4 inch room will 650 fit

    I am wondering if a 650 will fit in rear if I have a easy 3/4 inch to play with running 26 and 2,25 tires? Thanks

    A 650b tire is about 1" taller than the same size 26" tire. So 3/4" is plenty of room. However you need to take in to account the shape of the seatstay and chainstay. If the curve is too narrow the side knobs of certain tires may rub. On FS bikes you must also consider if it will rub the seatube or front derailleur at full compression.

    what year and model bike are you trying to fit the 650b wheel on the back ? there are threads with bikes that will fit at the top of the 650b folder plus you can go to 650B Palace for a good list of bikes.
