    650b Rigormootis

    Has any one tried putting 650b wheels on a Rigormootis? Mine has a Manitou Expert fork. I would also really like to keep my Avid Ultimate V-brakes. Any thoughts?

    Crazy talk, call Kent Eriksen and he will build you a sweet rigid Ti 650.

    Will a 650b fit in the rear?

    i have not actually tried, but i highly doubt it by eyeing it up. i've also had rubbing issues with certain 26X2.3 tires on my frame which also makes me think a 650b won't fit....on my frame anyway....can't say for yours.

    A friend converted her YBB to 650. Tires fit, barely.

    No mud clearance and a higher than typical Moots BB.

    Again, call Kent.

    Mine has 29ers
    About half an inch of travel at the rear but great for single track and urban riding. Fast as hell..
