    1st generation geometry with 650b rear.

    Has any one out there put a 650b on the back of their bike with geometry similar to the scalpel or f29 to give you a little more ht angle?

    That would slacken, not steepen, the head angle.

    I am not good with the technical terms. Make it more like the bikes better suited to roll over things.

    That would change the trail. Maybe better results to install an Angleset lower race on your headset.
    Wait,who did he tell you that?....
