    Spec. Camber w/ 160mm&29er front

    Been thinking about swapping some parts around to try out a 2018 Specialized camber 27.5 to accommodate a 160mm Lyrik and a 29er in the front to rake it out.
    Has anyone done anything as stupid as this before to a similar bike?

    If the current setup is 130mm and 27.5 then a 160mm lyrik and 29" wheel would be way too much of a change.

    That's brilliant. I think you should go for it.


    Can I please get a kickback from your surgeon after the inevitable high-speed failure and crash?

    That would be like putting a 200mm fork on your existing 27.5 wheels.
