My trusty Dragon is ready for a refresh! In looking closely, I believe that I have room to run a 650b rear as there seems to be copious room available in the rear triangle. With a fat Bontrager 2.3" rear tire, there is still over an inch gap to the chainstay and seatstay bridge.
For the front, a fork change to a non-tapered 650 fork and I'm set.
Suggestions, our comments from those that have had success with this conversion?
I'd also like to take the drivetrain to a 1x10 from 3x9. So, I need a 10sp cassette, new derailleur and front shifter. I guess I need to figure out the crsnkset piece too. Can a standard truvativ 3x crank be used with the addition of a wolf chanring?
Here's the patient....
