    Uber V Light 29er

    With the help of some members here and Craig from Mendon I recently constructed a sweet Ubver V Light with a 110 mm travel Lefty and 4.5" of rear travel.

    Thinking about maybe going 29er with it. I understand to change the front up is simply installing a spacer to limit lefty travel.

    How about the rea. I have a Jeckyl swing arm. How much clearance is there. Can I do a 29 rear wheel with a small tire. How about a 650B rear?

    If it's a CAAD4 swingarm there's no way you'll get a 29'er on there since you can barely get away with a 2.4 inch tire on a 26 inch rim.
