    Dirt Wizard 26" + Rabbit Hole 26"?

    Surly claims this combo on their Instigator 2.0 approximates a 650B wheel-tire diameter. I'm just wondering if anyone has tried putting the Knards-RHs on a 650B frame.
    Better to have and not need it, than to need it and not have it.

    I haven't, but the problem won't be with how tall the tires are, but how wide they are. I have some 50mm rims that I put a 26x2.5" on and they fit fine on my V1 Soma B-Side and should I chose to go in that direction, I think the Dirt Wizard will fit, but for most of my other conversions, not a chance.

    Your best bet is to mark across the chainstays and seatstays where the top of your 650b hits and measure the width. You'll need 3".

    I'm curious what 26 full suss frame sets will accomadate the DW on 35mm blunts? more the rear triangle as the fork won't be a problem.
