    650 limbo chips on old HD?

    Will the new 650b Limbo chips fit on the old HD? Will that lower my BB like the HDR? What about the rest of the geometry?

    I am currently running a HD140 650b

    If I do put them on will the only things I'm missing be
    1)additional tire clearance ( which i don't need right now)
    2)xx1 comparability (i can always use a washer if King hubs ever get a conversion )and
    3)a cool new color scheme?

    Thanks!

    I talked with ibis yesturday. None of the HDR chips fit the old hd frame, they are not cross compatible.

    Correct, but Bones, you could effectively achieve the same thing by adding offset shock bushings to your bike as it sits. By same thing, I mean it would position the bike a little deeper in its stroke, dropping the bb height and erasing some of the extra seat tube bottom out clearance you should have currently.
