    Bigger wheel in a slot dropout Scandal 26er?

    Hi guys, I have a 26er slot dropout Scandal frame.
    Ive been running it as a 26er singlespeed for ages, but am now wondering the possiblity of using a larger rear wheel on it. 29er or 650b?

    I know the bottom bracket height will increase, but is it actually possible to fit a larger wheel in the frame?

    Thanks in advance, Mike

    650Bx2.3 fits in the Swapout Inbred 26. Have not tried it in a Scandal 26

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
