    Converting 2013 Trek Mamba into a 650b

    I've seen most people agree that this would not work as the pedals could strike the ground easily.

    Do you think it would be possible to add a larger suspension fork to lift the bike up slightly?

    Interested to see if anyone has any ideas...

    First of all, you are going to have a hard time raising the BB enough with a longer fork. Second of all, you are still going to be stuck with really long chainstays. Converting 29ers to 650b just doesn't make much sense.
