    29er on a Rush lefty

    Anybody try a 29 inch front wheel on a Rush? I'm thinking I migh like the slacker head angle for all mountian riding. Thoughts?

    I know that you would have to reduce the travel of the lefty to 80mm or it would hit the lower crown.

    I converted my Rush. I had a shop do the reduction the lefty. But from what I have read it's something you can do yourself if you have some mechanical skills. I like the setup. I took it another step and added a 650b rear. I like that setup better so far but I haven't had a chance to do a lot of riding on it yet.

    Do your feet ever hit the tire while pedaling and turning? Could you post a pic or two of your 29/650b rush?
