    Anyone successfully run 650b both F/R on YBB

    I have been running my 650b front and 26er rear and I have been liking it. However now I am curious had anyone successfully run 650b both front and rear on a 26" Ybb frame? If not I am still happy

    I'm thinking about running a 650b front on my YBB. I would be interested to know more about your experience on the changes in handling and also the set-up you are running. I'm pretty sure a 650b wheel will not fit the rear of the YBB.

    I am also very interested in this. I have a 26" YBB with the slider drop outs, so if its even somewhat close I would think I could make it work with the wheel all the way back, but I don't have a 650b wheel to try it.

    Manzell might be the only winner here with his sliding drop outs. The way I made it work is my YBB is set up for a 100mm fork and I had sent the fork back so they could drop it down to 80mm. I also inquired to Moots about this and basically they said "sure why not" for the most part. So any geometry changes are slightly taken up by dropping the fork, but not totally. I will also mention that I ran a 100mm fork on my 1998 YBB and I tended to like it and didn't have any problems eventhough it was inteded for a 60-80mm fork.

    650B won't fit on the rear of my 96 YBB.
