    You can't really go by just the CS length. The area you need the length, is also where you need the most tire clearance as well, as the current Neo tire is pretty wide. Additionally, it depends on the bridge, if they use one.

    Anyone have a KHS DJ300 with the sliding dropouts? A DS frame that can handle a 650B? KHS riders are already using XFusion forks, they could have an easy 650B set-up for racing. think about it.

    The guy thought I was crazy but I stopped him this weekend and took some pics. I of course didn't have a 650b handy but here are the stays, looks like it would fit just fine... Again this is the 516H Leader frame that is on ebay all the time for about $150... Made by Kenesis...

    Tried a Neo Moto on a Velocity blunt into a BMC Team Elite 02 frame on the weekend. This frame has no chainstay brace, and oodles of 26 inch clearance. JUST fits the neo, but should be fine with anything narrower (tire height is fine), so should be great with a Quasi or any other 'normal' width 2/2.1 XC tire.

    Novarra Method Works

    Went testing FS bikes at lunch and found this one worked pretty darn well. Rei house brand is not to sexy but it did not hit at full compression and the front derailleur cleared nicely too. 6" of travel in a faux bar design the frame looked beefy. Check out the pics.

    That's pretty tight clearance

    If that wheel were to go ever so slightly out of true - you'd get tire rub I suspect

    2005/2006 Marin Wolf Ridge Works

    Hey all I found a 2006 Marin Wolf Ridge in a used bike shop that fit the Neo moto rear tire. Cleared the front derailleur and the frame at full compression. 14.5" high BB though with no sag. I also tried a 2008 Marin Mt Vision and it hit the seat tube barely right at full compression. Cleared the FD nicely though. No Pics forgot the camera.

    1st gen soul cycles hooligan fits a 29" wheel (pulled RIGHT back in the horiz. d-outs) with a 2" tire and has about 1/4" mud clearance, will fit a 650B for sure.
    santa cruz blur 4X has about 1/2 inch chainstay and about 8mm seatstay mud clearance around a 26x2.35 intense edge tire... won't fit a 650B I'm sure.
    giant NRS carbon barely fits a 700C with a 28mm tire so I doubt anything knobby would slot in. (assuming all NRS's are the same as I believe the chain and seat stays are the same pieces)

    Let me know if someone DOES get a 650B in an NRS though, think the wife might like it!


    EDIT: I can fit a 29er rear wheel in my early hooligan with a 2" specialized (captain)tire, but a 2.3" exiwolf DOESN'T fit.

    What's the clearance like on the Haro Sonix with the Quasi-Moto? Also anybody try the Ventana Pantera? Single pivot bikes have a pretty good success rate and they are very reasonable on Ebay.

    Has anyone tried to fit a 650b wheel and tire on a Haro Werx SS?

    There is no chainstay bridge and the EBB would allow you to get the bb down low again.

    Drop this question in the Haro forum. Thos are kinda hard to come by, these days. I bet Jill or Pat would know.

    I have Jill's old bike, so I don't think she can check for me.

    I'll ask over there.

    A VooDoo Sobo Scandium/Carbon frame came through the office today, The Neo-Moto mounted on a Blunt cleared the CS and SS. I think the carbon wish-bone is the same as spec'd on the Salsa MotoRapido. Better clearance if the Quasi was used. But, alas, no rubbing.
    FWIW I check the smallest size of this frame, a 14.5", it's tiny.

    Anyone know if the new Trek Fuel Ex 9.x alum rear triangle will fit a 27.5er ?
    I was looking at them at Wheat Ridge Cyclery the other day, and it looks like they
    almost have clearance. I started to ask if I could pull my wheel off my Moj and give it a try.
    Also, the Yeti Asr looked like it could also.

    Just an update for this thread. The older 2006/2007 Salsa Ala Carte frames have plenty o room for the 650b and Neomoto. Just different Effective Top Tube lengths than the newer Ala Cartes - which also have plenty o room.

    what would a 650B front wheel with a 26er rear wheel be called...? 650/26er...

    Setting up my Salsa Juan Solo this way once I build up the wheel with a winwood carbon fork. Should be fun

    OK, no pics to post, but I've been running my BMC Team Elite 02 2008 hardtail with a Quasi in the back for a month now, it fits easily. It will take the Neo no problems either.

    Good bike to convert for all the XC folk out there. Light and stiff, and heaps of room for a 650b.

    Ibis Mojo

    The Ibis Mojo can fit 650b, but for maximum safety the shock shaft travel to be limited by 1/16 inch (2mm) to ensure a Pacenti Neo-moto 650b tire cannot possibly scrape the seat tube if the shock mechanically bottoms the 2 inch stroke. I've limited my Mojo's coil shock using a metal washer cut open on one side to slip onto the shock shaft and fixed in place under the bottom bumper. With an air shock if may be possible to remove the air can and slide a large enough o-ring loosely around the shaft to act as a mechanical bottom bumper (I have not tested this and would appreciate someone with an air shock to verify).

    Other than seat tube clearance caution, the Pacenti Quasi-moto tire easily fits with 7 to 8mm stay clearance. The Neo-moto can barely fit with 3 to 4mm clearance and some knobs may need to be trimmed shorter to avoid slight rubbing, but there is not enough clearance using the Neo-moto for muddy conditions.

    hey derby, this is very interesting to me...sometime when you get a chance, please post a photo of your rear triangle with quasi-moto's...maybe in both new wheels and ibis forums...the last time i saw your bike you wasn't using the pike...not your favorite anymore.???

    I'm using the rare '07 Nixon Elite 160 - 130mm coil Wind-Down fork w/20mm axle. It's lighter than the Pike by about 1/4 pound, but not quite as stiff, although the spring rate is more linear and plush and TPC+ damping is better. I like using the 160mm travel for fast or steep downhill and may use it at 150mm everywhere on my trip soon to Utah and Arizona where itís rockier. The Pike should have this travel range and a more linear deep travel spring. If I were buying a new coil fork now for my Mojo uses it would be the Lyric.

    Hereís a picture of the Quasi on the Mojo with the original swingarm where it only cleared by about 4 - 5mm. I got a new rear swingarm. My very early Mojo swingarm was shorter than production and the production rear swingarm clears the Quasi easily with 8 - 10mm clearance and I'm running the Neo-moto now with only about 3 - 5mm clearance and had to snip a few irregular high knobs shorter. All the air shock Mojo riders say they donít need to shorten travel with the quasi-moto tire Ė maybe my center frame is also not to production spec dimensions. With the Neo-moto I think shortening shock travel 1/16 inch would be needed.

    On the Mojo SL I am running or have run a Neo Moto on the front end and a Quasi Moto on the rear end.

    You can also run a Neo Moto on the rear *if* you trim the knobs a bit.

    I would say definitely yes, especially with the sliding dropout feature on this frame.

    You bought that frame before I could make and offer with the idea in my mind of doing just that - turning it into a 650b rigid bike. Go for it LHT!!! Go for it!

    Pivot Firebird

    I visited the Pivot headquarters a week ago and saw the prototype Firebird 6.7 inch travel AM/Trail bike. It had about 3/4 inch clearance in the chainstays beyond the 26 inch tires mounted with larger casing height beyond the rim than the Neo-Moto. I have no idea if the 6.7 inch bottom travel might need to be limited slightly to clear the seat tube.

    Using a fork with 160mm travel that can be lowered, such as the Talas 36 or Lyric U-Turn or 2-Step, for quicker steering and climbing balance would keep the BB height from becoming too high for rough tight trail balance and pedal clearance. The DW-Link likes deep sag so the high topped out BB is really not so high when riding. Equipped with an XTR build this bike is only about 30 - 31 lbs with air suspension. And it is extremely stiff laterally and in rear swingarm torsion flex.

    I just converted my K2 Apache 6.0 to 650b. There is so much room in the back that it looks like it was made for this set-up! (could probably fit a 3"+ tire in there - running NeoMotos now). I'm using a White Bros. up front (100) so, I've got 4" all the way around. Super sweet ride and the bottom bracket is still low. It's now my favorite ride for all-day riding or XC racing. Total weight with Stans ZTR and Hope 2 hubs is just under 24 lbs.

    Some pics of the K2 - tried to get some close-ups of the clearance on the rear-end. As you can see, plenty of room! Sweet riding with no pedal-bob!

    BTW, I originally put the above wheelset on an '01 Homegrown Ltd (the gold one) with a Salsa rigid fork - so, to add to the list, the Homegrown fits 650b just fine - almost as much room as on the K2!

    Also, the bottom of BB on the K2 above sits at just a hair under 13".

    DoubleTake

    Is it just my imagination or is this the same frame as the Apache with a heck of a lot better shock?

    They do look similar! Probably built in the same factory. That upper rear stay looks like it came out of the same mold. I checked the geometry and they are different, however. So, don't know, but that's a great price if they ride the same - I'd pick up a spare.

    they're similar in that they're both linkage actuated single-pivot designs with all the upper linkages being in near identical places.

    however, the main differences are that the sette has the swingarm pivot more rearward than the K2, and the K2 has more gusseting at the headtube and upper seat tube than the sette.

    still, they probably do come out of the same factory.

    Cool-blue Rhythm 26" Reba Team Fork???

    Nada Ed. Check the 650B fork thread instead of the frame thread.

    Sinister Splinter FS is a fit. I received visual confirmation from a one A Nony Moose earlier today. 650b with Neomoto clears a Sinister Splinter Fully with ample room for mud clearance.

    I called price point and asked, but i would have to order bike and then see if it fits.
    I have the 650b wheelset in a mtn cycle fury. I have confirmed fits in a santa cruz supelight- really close to the front der. And a confirmed fit in a orbea occam. better
    front der cleance than the superlight.

    I want to know all the cheap rigid options...

    Tire size is WAY more important for those without suspension because with no suspension there is no give so everything you roll over or "hit" is much harsher, much more likely to kick you off the bike, etc... You got easy with suspension to begin with, for going over anything, throw in bigger wheels and it is amazing what you can go over.

    Fango

    Anybody tried the Castellano Fango? It's got a low-ish BB and looks like enough clearance...

    I'll email John to find out. I spoke to him at NAHBS about his S.o.S. frame and he thought he may be able to configure that as 26,650b, and 29. The Fango has been engineered for 26" cush, and my throw wrench in the mix when the chain stays start flexing differently. Or perhaps they won't. An engineer should step in with that info.....

    I've acquired a Salsa A La Carte. The only question is what the dropouts are. I assume they are vertical? I really want to put a Shimano Alfine hub on it.

    fisher's fit

    looks like this frame which is the same on the hkek through to the advance will fit 650b's..the advance does have a seat stay bridge because of rim pincher brakes, which may not work, this pic is of the tassajara.

    A 2.3" 26-inch wheel will barely fit in the back of a ripley/fango, so don't think there's a chance that a 650b would fit.

    I've been wanting to put a 650b up front though.......just need to convince myself it would be worthwhile and get one.

    Soma Groove? Hmmm, I missed that post somehow.
    Me thinks I might be building a new wheel or two soon.
    Now to find my tape measure and see what my 4one5 has to say about this, I think if the Groove can do it, I'm in!
    I guess my FS doesn't need to wear that Fox fork anymore.
    Now to do some 650b rim and tire shopping!

    Add the Commencal Meta 5.5 to the list of 26" fully frames that have room for the 650b with Neomoto - at least at the chainstays and seatstays. Waiting on A Nony Moose to confirm travel etc. with it, but it looks like it could be a go!

    oh yeah. absolutely fits.
    travel is 100% cuz this suspension linkage would have to be driven THRU the seat tube before the tire ever came close

    A New One to Add to the list.

    A 650b with Quasi Moto (Thanks again Mickey) clears the rear chainstays and seatstays on a 1995 Kona Fire Mountain with decent amount of room.

    Pics to follow in the a.m.

    It also fits on a 1996 Trek 850 with decent room to shed mud.

    I do need to true up this rear wheel that came on the Haro Beasley - sometimes stuff like that goes unnoticed when always running discs.

    So add a couple more frames to the list there Cracked Headtube!

    I have a 1989 (?) specialized rockhopper and I put a velocity synergy wheelset on it with the neo motos and the front fork has a couple mm of space and the chain stays have a millimeter or two for clearance. If you guys want I'll put them back on and take some photos, but you can definitely do quasi's and have room for mud.

    Here's how 650b looks on a steel Mojo w/ a Duke fork. Clearance on the fork is close. Seat stays look passable. Chain stays are tight. Can't wait to see how it rides this weekend.

    A set of Quasi-motos would help a lot on that Ibis.

    any suggestions for a low buck frame to build a commuter with? I am wanting something that i can still hit the trails with. I'd ride the Sycip but people seem to like to try and run me over on the way to work...

    I was thinking about a redline monocog 26" but i don't see where anyone has tried one and there are none in town to try.

    I can also get a killer deal on an 08 kona fire mountain. I saw where there older ones fit, anyone try a newer model? I don't think the dart 3 fork will clear either. Suppose i can haul my wheels down there and check on that one myself.

    any other suggestions would be appreciated.
    Thanks!

    Thanks Kirk! I was looking for some cheaper options. Used 1x1's seem to have dried up with the discovery of 650b wheels. Stumbled into a few other used bikes but people don't seem to keen on me coming over and swapping wheels before purchase...lol.

    Cool-blue Rhythm 650B mtb/cyclocross Bad Boy

    I'll be getting a new 08 C-Dale Bad Boy that I plan to convert to mountain/cyclocross singletrack terror. Some upgrades planned include: Stans ZTR 355 650B rims, DT Swiss hubs, cyclocross 34/48T crankset - still looking, some lightweight carbon goodies to lighten the bike up even more. Tires will probably be Pacenti Quasi-Moto 2.0. Already have SRAM X.0 carbon rear derailer and twist shifters. Will be posting pics when the build takes form.

    Salsa El Santo FS Confirmed 650B

    Hello All,
    I just finished (literally) building up this brand new Salsa "El Santo" for a 5'4" girl. I've installed my post/saddle for the test ride only (why it looks so odd). I installed an older Manitou Black Fork that I had laying about, but a RS Revelation 426 20mm is on the way. The rims/tires are Blunts/Quasi Moto. Bike has minimal mud clearance (.25") in both the front and the back. Is there any "new school" Salsa that doesn't accept a 650B? I'm not sure if this is the best conversion for wet/muddy locals, but it does work so...

    Hello,
    I just finished my latest 650B rig and while assembling it I sorted through all the forks that I had laying about which may have worked. Anyway, I thought that you may wish to know that these forks that the following forks that I have work with the Blunt/Quasi set-up: 2003 Duke Air Race works sweet, 2005 Judy SL U-Turn works (but is wicked heavy), and speaking of rather heavy forks, the 2003 Marzocchi Shiver 20mm (as many may have suspected) works perfectly for any FS trail rig.

    PS: I will try to post pics over the next few days
