I am looking for a new hardtail and it seems most manufacturers are focusing on 29ers, and I am a 26er man but really am intrigued by the new 650b movement. Unfortunately I can't wait for next year's bikes and I have my eyes on the Trail SL2. It seems the geo specs aren't too far off from the new Scott Scale 740...I was wondering if anyone with knowledge of conversions could say whether a) this bike wouldn't be ruined if I went to a new 27.5" fork/front wheel and b) if there is clearance, any indication it would make a good full convert.
Thoughts? Or another option I should be thinking of for around ~$1300?TRAIL SL 2 - Trail SL - Hardtail - Mountain - Bikes - 2013
