    650b/27.5" rear triangle on 26" Helius AC Pinion frame?

    Can the rear triangle on a 26" Helius AC Pinion frame be swapped for a 27.5" rear triangle?

    I mailed Nicolai a long time ago asking about doing the same for a 26" Ion 16, but the answer was no

    That said, looking at how custom linkages and swingarms adapted the pilot's Geometron to 175mm travel instead of 155, I would think anything is possible - would be cool to adapt my 26" frame to a shorter-travel 27.5 trail bike.
