I am interested in getting this frame:
Voodoo Bicycles USA :: Sobo
but would want to set it up with 650b wheels. Does anybody know if there is enough clearance in the rear triangle??
Google says: Yes!
The Sobo is listed here with a limitation of using tires not bigger than 2.1".

Can you post a link here? I am interested in hearing first hand experiences regarding specific tire sizes, brands etc.
I edited my first answer so you should see the link.
I barf on top tubes
If you can find one of the older Bakka frames they have gobs of clearance and work well as a 69'r i have a photo of my bike on my profile.. Its pictured with a vredestine 2.4 and still has TONS of room left.. the angles of the frame lend itself to larger wheels.
I personally confirmed the Sobo. This was in 2008. The 2.3" Neo-Moto rubbed slightly and the Quasi Moto cleared. Be sure your wheel is dished properly. I did not ride the bike, only check the clearance on an unbuilt frame that was ordered through my work place.
Cool. Thanks for the help. Perhaps I will pass on this frame to get one that has a little more clearance for bigger tires.
