    Sovereign/Fango potential

    I'm considering trying 650B on a couple of frames that, otherwise, i'll probably unload to raise some funds for the next 29er project.

    Castellano Fango, wondering if 650B on the front would make it keepable. Is the difference that significant?

    Evil Sovereign, thinking 650B front and back, and also could try 650B/29 combo. Would be fun to experiment with, but i hesitate to spend funds on new 650B wheels...that could go directly towards a 29er frame i've got my eye on.

    Would a set of 650B wheels give new life to these frames?

    I have a hard time resisting nice wheels, so the cost to try may be significant.

    Send a note to Chad at Red Barn Cycles and see what type of wheel build options he can propose centered around the Alex 650b rims. It might surprise you.

    I'd think a 650b Sov would be killer!!!!
