    Guardian 27.5

    hi guys, I was really bored this morning so I started messing around with my bikes. its a tad on the cold side to go for a ride today. its just above 20 degrees up here in buffalo. not that i ride that often during the winter time anyway. here we have a 18" guardian 2.0 frame i had laying around with 27.5" wheels off my fiances diamondback with a cheapo rst aerial 120mm 29er fork and a stem and bars i had laying around. I really like it. in fact I like it so much I was thinking about building it up and completeing it to ride for the summer. anyone here ever fuild a 27.5" tire bike out of a 29er frame? the difference in overall tire diameter between the honey badger pro 2.2s i run on my silver goblin and the stock diamondback tires really isnt that extreme and there is not as much difference as i was expecting. any insight on my possible build and opinions are appreciated.

    I think the topic was brought up in another thread a year or so ago, but I don't see why you can't do it. Only downside is the BB drop, but the upside is how much more capable the bike will be, much better in tight cornering.

    Great looking ride!
