    Anyone know if I can convert a Moots YBB air to 650b?

    I just started reading on this wheel size and now I want to try it. Problem is no one around here has a wheel to try in it?
    thanks

    The Skareb is very similar to the R7 that replaced it. The R7 "fits" 650b, but will slightly rub the arch while riding and buzz the crown on large hits. So I would not call it a good 650b fork, and I would not expect the Skareb to be either.
