    69 a Rush?

    Wondering if anyone has tried making their Rush into a 69er?

    I've considered throwing a F29, 100mm on the front of the rush and feeling things out.

    Main concern would be tire meeting the bottom of the frame.

    thoughts?

    You may want to consider a 67.5'r instead. You can get a spacer kit for the lefty allowing you to use a 29" wheel but you will loose 30mm of travel. A 650b wheel up front will only require one 10mm spacer which is easy to install and you still have 100mm of travel. The 650b wheel will give you most of the benefit of a 29" wheel and you can even add a 650b wheel to the back if it's a 2007 or older frame. Geometry won't be as messed up with this option either.

    Here is a picture of mine with 650b's front and back.
