    Scott Voltage FR 650b

    Pictures? I wish.

    I'm pretty sure they will fit. Max tire size is 26x2.5, but it appears to be width restricted, not height. There is no seatstay bridge. I haven't been able to find a good picture of the bottom bracket chainstay bridge area.

    This is as close as I can get and it looks promising:


    Some guys on the 523 page long PB thread have commented on shock mount setups that make the bottom bracket height very low, like 12.5", so there is room to lift the BB back up while maintaining a really aggressive geometry.

    Combine that with a +1.5 Angleset to bring the geometry back into All-Mountain numbers (67 degrees?).

    Why am I interested? The Voltage has tons of versatility. Some guys have built these as light as 33lbs with heavy tire and lots of fr/dh parts (heavy stem, heavy bars, etc)...so it may be a good solution for an Enduro/SuperD bike.

    Looks like plenty of clearance at the bottom. What about seat stay at full travel? Voltage frames are relatively cheap to.
